Berdscarnival (Maraya Lopez) is originally from West Texas and has lived in NY since arriving in 2008 to attend Pratt Institute for an MFA. She works in a variety of media but enjoys exploring with childlike materials such as crayons, toys and paper mache. She is currently using her IPhone 7 to create short video studies. She has an ongoing conceptual platform called Berdscarnival that takes the form of a sideshow carnival to explore various concepts such as, frontier, labor and deception. Bring your money if you want to play a game on the midway.
