Fátima Rodrigo Gonzales

Born 1987 in Lima, Peru
Lives and works in Lima and itinerant


Using different kinds of media, Fátima Rodrigo Gonzalez explores the representation of modernism and gender identity through different devices such as architecture, modern art and pop culture. Her work problematises the structures of power that, in a post-colonial context, continue to organise the world, veiling the fluid relations between coloniser and colonised that compose what we understand as ‘modern’.

By implementing methodologies related to queering, she creates subtle acts of subversion by translating the aforementioned elements into other materials and highlighting details that have frequently gone unnoticed.
