Lives in Bogotá

Juliana Góngora Rojas is an artist, sculptor and educator from Bogotá, Colombia who is currently interested in the exchange of knowledge with artisans and Indigenous communities from the Americas. She considers matter and sculpture as transversal languages in life. For her, sculpture is not an intellectual research, but a relationship with matter that evolves over time. Góngora Rojas believes that art and life cannot be separated, that we are entangled with ordinary matter and our relationship with it is physical, humane, and frequently overlooked. She calls for a material consciousness and asserts that as human beings we must begin to focus more on our daily actions instead of centring our attention in our discourses.
