Sofia Zuluaga, Bogota, 1989.
Her works have been exhibited in the United States, UK, Mexico, Italy and Spain, and have been selected as finalists in internationally renowned art competitions such as Figurativas and ModPortrait. Moreover, her works have been exhibited in several museums including Museo Pablo Serrano (Zaragoza, Spain) and Museu Europe D’art Modern (Barcelona, Spain). Currently, she resides in Barcelona.
Her themes of exploration revolve around a sense of inciting rebellion against our social conditioning; the narratives determining who and what each individual is entitled to be. In her series, In Circum Morbi, she utilizes sex as a vehicle of representation to expose the irony that is our contemporary identity and tempts the viewer to break free from their moral canon. She has created a realm, her very own dark circus, in which she highlights how sordid humanity can be whilst guided by forces that we are seldom aware of. She utilizes vibrant colors amidst difficult themes, heightening the paradox of it all. In this fashion, Sofia creates tension in the spectator, with the sole purpose of pushing her audience to question and coming to terms with who they really are.
