Artist Biography

Gaby Montejo approaches art through photo, sound, interviews, and temporary installation often with performative actions.  The work often explores democracy and hierarchy in a way where the finished work is consumed or destroyed during the process of making. Whilst exhibiting internationally, Gaby stays pivotal in the social initiatives and collaborative interventions of Christchurch. Born to Cuban parents, Gaby attended art schools in Australia and America and moved to Ōtautahi/Christchurch in 2006.
