Bio

*

Artista transdisciplinar, investigadora, baterista (1984, Medellín, Colombia).

Diplomada en Arquitectura y Arte sonoro. Actualmente vivo en Francia, en una área peri-urbana cerca a la ciudad de Caen, donde estoy tejiendo nuevas colaboraciones con coreógrafas de la escena emergente de la ciudad y artistas. Mi práctica está altamente relacionada al entorno en el cual se desarrolla, a las prácticas site-specific, a la performance, al cuerpo en el espacio, al carácter imaginativo de la escucha, al texto.

En el 2017 con el proyecto «The Reading Room #3: Aparatos del Habla y Materialismo Histoerico» recibí la Beca para artistas emergentes Barcelona Producción; en el 2019 con «The Reading Room #4: Los Tambores Negros» recibí la Beca para artistas visuales emergentes del Programa Nacional de Estímulos del Ministerio de Cultura de Colombia, proyecto que sigue desarrollando.

En España continuo desarrollando un trabajo de investigación performativa enfocada en el cuerpo y prácticas sonoras junto a la baterista Rocío Campaña.

***

Transdisciplinary artist, researcher, drummer (b.1984, Medellín, Colombia).

I made studies in Architecture and Sound Art. I currently live in France, in a peri-urban area close to the city of Caen and where I am weaving new collaborations with choreographers from the emerging scene of the city and artists. My practice is highly related to the environment in which it takes place, to site-specific practices, to performance, to the body in space, to the capacity of sound to create images, to the text.

In 2017, with the project «The Reading Room # 3: Aparatos del Habla y Materialismo Histoerico» I received the Barcelona Producción Emerging Artists Grant; In 2019 with «The Reading Room # 4: Los Tambores Negros (The Black Drums)» I received the Grant for Emerging Visual Artists from the National Stimulus Program of the Ministerio de Cultura de Colombia to continue its development and research.

In Spain, I continue to work with the drummer Rocío Campaña in a performative research focus on the body and sound practices.
