Manuela Illera, Bogotá, Colombia 1988.
As an interdisciplinary artist, her focus includes researching various techniques and media to develop her individual and collaborative artistic work in various fields such as Stage Design, Fine Arts, Music, and Sound for Films and Performances.
She has collaborated with the Bavarian Opera in Munich and most recently as a painter on three different productions with the renown director Ersan Mondtag.
In her quest to unite multiple disciplines to convey a political message, she has incorporated video and installation in her latest work. The conceptual development of the projects includes sculpture, painting, video and, more recently, in-depth research into sound.
Illera's artistic guidelines are influenced by the intersection of her experiences as a woman, artist, musician, and immigrant. She is currently studying at The Academy of Fine Arts Munich.
