Aleida Martínez - Contemporary Artist 

Born in Bogotá, Colombia. I currently live in Paris, France.

 

My work is mainly introspective and explores the relationship between the" self " and  the " others ", through the use of mixed techniques, privileging embroidery, drawing, photography and textile sculpture. My interest is to explore identity-building relationships such as sexuality, gender, death and language and to question in these, the received ideas of "normal" and "natural".
