Nancy Dayanne Valladares (b.1991) is an interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker from Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Her work grapples with the constructions of vegetal imaginaries and the specters that lie within. Influenced by discourses on chemoethnography, critical plant studies, and speculative futurism, her image-based practice delves into the formation of optical tools and their accompanying visual regimes. Her practice closely examines photography’s historical entanglement with botanical imaginaries and chemical legacies.
Valladares completed her Bachelor in Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Masters of Science in Art, Culture and Technology from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She was recently a Fellow at Harvard University’s Film Studies Center, A Fialkow Fellow from the Transmedia Storytelling Initiative at MIT, and a resident at Bauhaus Dessau. Her work has been exhibited and screened at Massachusett’s Institute of Technology, Sakiya (Palestine), Weisner Gallery, Chuquimarca Projects, Sullivan Galleries Goethe Institute, Bauhaus Dessau, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Research House for Asian Art, and Roman Susan Gallery.
