Aurora Molina was born in La Havana, Cuba, in 1984. Using the tools of embroidery, sculpture-making, drawing, photography, and video, she uses the potential of fiber art to communicate ideas about social and political issues. Her multifaceted platform provides a sustained and powerful critique of a society that “dismisses” the most vulnerable as they become invisible and hidden from everyday life. Her early work is concerned with the objectification of beauty and the growing anonymity of the elderly in our society. She believes a clear connection exists between the media-fueled manipulation, edification and standardization of physical beauty and the increasing denial of the actual process of physical aging. Her multifaceted platform provides a sustained and powerful critique of a society that “dismisses” the most vulnerable as they become invisible and hidden from everyday life. ⁣With a commitment to Advanced Fiber Art in Miami, Molina is a co-founder of FAMA, Fiber Artists-Miami Association a newly artist collaborative that builds community through textiles and weaves Miami together.
