Inés Cardó (b.1999) is a Peruvian/Spanish artist based in London. Her practice explores the concepts of diasporic identity and the body archive, with a special focus on the colonial legacy of the Global North in Latin America, and the embodiment of these experiences of struggle and resistance. She likes to observe unconscious, everyday actions among migrant communities and portray them as active forms of history subversion. Her work has been exhibited and included in the public programmes of the Whitechapel Gallery, South London Gallery, and La Casa Encendida, among others.
