KAYLA DELACERDA (B. 1992 MIAMI BEACH, FL)
BASED IN MIAMI FLORIDA
Kayla Delacerda endlessly takes photos of Miami, Florida. These photographs are taken out of a need to record and document change in the urban landscape, in effect investigating an unseen cultural history found in the streets and architecture of the city. The physical and visual space that photographs take is an unending obsession for her and she explores it in the display mechanisms of her work. She has performed throughout the city as herself, enacting sexy santa, mopping the arcades of the Design District, hiding in bushes, and painting walls.
Kayla also spearheads the organization Midnight Thrift, an operation that constructs an itinerant thrift
store open after dark, while also creating one of a kind goods like, clothing, accessories, and homewares from their donated inventory.
