Paula de Solminihac

Born 1974 in Santiago, Chile
Lives in Santiago


Paula de Solminihac's work is developed in three dimensions that are mutually reinforcing: her creative practice as an artist; her work as professor at the School of Art, Universidad Católica de Chile; and her role as Executive Director of Nube Lab, an NGO dedicated to contemporary art and education. Since 2000, de Solminihac has been conducting constant research on ceramics, in particular, on processes of material and symbolic transformation. Through this work, her practice has become recognised as one that connects research on the creative processes in art and their relationship with nature.
