Maud Haya-Baviera was born in France and currently lives and works in Sheffield, UK. In 2004, she graduated from a five-year’s Master Degree in Fine Art, Diplôme National Supérieur D’Expression Plastique, at the École National Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Lyon, France.
She works with a variety of media and methods including video, photography, sculpture and installation employing the strategies of appropriation, performance and participation. She uses literature, cinema and any other material able to convey narratives, which she then playfully subverts to provoke new meanings. Her current work applies visual experiments to test, challenge and improve understanding of the repercussions of immigration over different generations. More broadly, her work is centred on emancipatory concerns.
