b. Medellín, Colombia 1976
Camila Botero’s multidisciplinary work raises questions about the instability of the present time, and how we are changing rapidly and irreversibly our world. In her practice there is a constant observation towards the environment, the city and everyday objects, bearing in mind situations where encounter, tension and fragility are to be found. Her work is achieved in different formats -photography, video, sculpture, text- that explore the multiple perspectives of what it means to be human in our accelerated, digital age.
She has participated in solo shows at Lokkus Gallery, Medellín (2019); Galería de la Oficina, Medellín (2015); CCB, Bogotá (2014); Casa Imago, Medellín (2012); Alianza Francesa, Medellín (2010). Her work has also been in numerous group exhibitions as Timebag, Medellín (2019); Filet Gallery, London (2018), Museo de Antioquia, MDE15 (2015); Artecámara, Bogotá (2013); Estarter3, Indonesia (2012); Ceroinspiración, Ecuador (2010). She has been artist-in-residence at Flora ars+natura, Bogotá (2014); The Yes Farm, Detroit (2011); Zona 30, Lima (2011); Frontera Compartida CEDIC Ecuador/Perú (2010).
Camila gained her MA at the Royal College of Art, London (2017), and has a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from University of Antioquia (2010).
