Born in 1974, Ana González lives and works in Colombia. Her academic background covers architecture, visual arts and editing, and she makes artworks in the media of drawing, painting, photography, video, installation, embroidery and porcelain.
Looking into inherited culture, collective memory and narrations of displacement, her art practice is based on her experience of listening carefully to people and artisans who have been displaced by armed conflicts and migrated to cities. Her interest in handicrafts and family traditions, and her passion for investigating women’s life and perspective from an artistic and scientific point of view have been her recurrent inspirations.
Ana González’s works are collected by museums in South America and in the U.S.A. and they are in private collections around the world.
