Devin Alejandro-Wilder (they/them) is a latinx working artist who manipulates identity and research-informed found and fabricated materials and processes to create work that exists within and in-between interdisciplinary sculpture, installation, and performance. Born deaf, queer, and identifying as non-binary, their work manifests from the complex intersections of both inherited and lived experiences. Having moved back to their home state of Texas only a few months before the pandemic began, they have spent the past year forming a new body of work that utilizes multi-channel video installation, photography, site-specific performance, and critical writing to explore and untangle developing concepts around labor, language, land, assimilation, diasporic identity, systems, and queerness.
