J Triangular

Colombia-Born, Taiwan-Based

I am an independent curator, queer poet, experimental filmmaker / DIY video artist, and photographer, making art projects that speak about resistance, gender dynamics and memory landscapes. My work often consists of poetic portraits of the unresolved social violences of history, and the rupture of identity in a culture of manufactured fear and legally institutionalized discrimination.

My work consistently addresses themes including counterculture and music, queer community identity and self-empowerment, radical forms of queer memory and resistance, social transformation, art and collective action with the use of accessible technologies, camcorder activism, promoting communication and links of solidarity. I often aim to activate social consciousness and emotional compassion, cementing community bonds and transforming shame and guilt into something positive.
