Romina Gonzales (b. 1989, Lima, Peru) is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Her work exists between the gaps of sculpture, video, installation, writing and performance, addressing issues of social construction, identity, politics, human emotion and experience through gestures that combine tangible and intangible materials.
