About the artist

Marcela Pardo Ariza (b. Bogotá, Colombia) is a queer latinx visual artist and curator that explores the relationship of representation, kinship, and queerness through constructed photographs, color sets, and installations. Through staging varied subjects and anthropomorphic objects, Ariza deploys sets as a resource to the possibility of (re)building a story, while materializing potential yet attainable narratives fundamental to envisioning present and future prospects. Ariza’s work illustrates her commitment to celebrating the erroneous, navigating intergenerational connection, and questioning arbitrary paradigms while playing with the rigidity that is often present in the photographic medium.
