Cristina Umaña (b. 1993 in Bogotá, Colombia)
Lives and works in Bogotá, Colombia.
She works with textiles and drawing. To do this, she collects images, uses fabrics for printing, dyeing, sewing and to create installations. These materials describe situations, bodies, and objects that surround her experience of time and space. It seeks to reflect with humor about mourning, death and everyday life: the objects that are used daily, the simplicities, the smells, the silhouettes, and the invented names serve to find the meaning of loss. In the search to cling to memory and in fear of forgetting, her work is nothing more than a set of fleeting and transitory fragments.
