Kiyo Gutiérrez is a Mexican performance artist and historian. Her work explores the environmental, social and political issues affecting contemporary society. Through her body, she seeks to explore performance art’s potential as a tool of resistance. She is often inspired by elements of the prehispanic past, bit she also draws on other mediums such as theatre, dance and poetry. With the hope of eroding preconceived notions of nature, culture, gender, identity, sexuality and art, Kiyo strives to dissolve cultural taboos that have been constructed under a patriarchal system and generate discussions about our complex social realities.
