Artist Statement

Hoesy Corona is a multidisciplinary Artist living and working in Baltimore Maryland. Corona's colorful sculptural and performance-based works are created as new myths that tell the story of those who exist on the margins, borders and peripheries of society and historically have been under attack. Corona explains the participation of Queer bodies in a world severed by "borderlands" using dynamic moving performances and inventive sculptures fitted to the human body.
