Ana Luisa Bernárdez Notz is a multidisciplinary artist and DJ fromVenezuela, residing in Toronto since 2015. Her image and installationbased practice is currently rooted in the Venezuelan migrant crisis andcollective sentiments of loss and longing. Her most recent projects look intobody-land ties that are ruptured, paused and transformed due to migration andlack of physical proximity, focusing on her own experience being away from thelandscapes she grew up frequenting. Ana Luisa holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts inPhotography from OCAD University 2020, and was recently a mentee in SurGallery's 2019-2020 Mentorship Program.
