Ela Spalding (Panama/UK, 1982) is an artist~facilitator exploring the ecotones between fields of knowledge, using art as a conduit to practice and convey notions of ecology and interconnectedness. Her work focuses on sound, wellbeing and nature’s processes to invite listening and resonance within and without. She’s founder and director of Estudio Nuboso, a platform for art and ecology based in Panama and Mallorca, Spain. She’s currently working on the notion of a planetary nature-culture corridor of solidarity and regeneration, using the Suelo Methodology as a field guide to support people to (re)connect with the places we inhabit. Her artwork has been shown in the XIII Bienal de La Habana, Cuba (2019), the X Bienal Centroamericana in Costa Rica (2016), Bienal de Artes Visuales del Istmo Centroamericano (Bavic9) in Guatemala in 2014, as well as collective exhibitions in Panama, throughout Latin America and Europe.
