​I am a Colombian Visual artist. My work attempts to reveal identities through the aesthetics of ordinary ; a place, a city, a population, a house. Nowadays, I am working on my master's investigation “FARRRA”, it started with my own identity as a Colombian woman, deconstructing the international sexualization and stereotyping of Latino women. Nevertheless, the investigation has transformed into a more global understanding of the sexualization and objectification of the female body. This body of work questions the ongoing colonial perception of the female body and works as a decolonization response where the body is thought of as a form of communication a site of politics, history, and resistance.

 

My research process starts in different ways.  Sometimes it arises from a personal experience an example is  “I dont twerk for you motherfucker” 2021. In other cases from an idea; and in some instances from a technique or a specific material (“GlassBreast” 2020). I work with sculptural installation, and in a parallel way, with photography. I look for a dialogue between form and content. Each piece employs specific techniques that develop in accordance with what projects seek to express. In general, there is a weaving of different cultures: Japanese, Colombian, and the UK—places where I have lived for different periods.​
