Yesenia Bello

Yesenia Bello in collaboration with Nataliya Kotlova, Plot, Twist, Aerobics, 2016, Mixed Media, Installation View

Yesenia Bello was born in Norristown, PA and now makes installations, sculptures, and drawings in Chicago, IL. As a first-generation Mexican-American, she considers the shameful act of slowly losing one's native tongue and the spectrum of human instincts that arise when attempting to connect without words. Through the often full-body manipulation of materials she discovers new forms of building her own visual sentence infrastructures. Yesenia Bello graduated with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2016.
