Romina Gonzales (b. 1989, Lima, Peru) is New York based, Peruvian interdisciplinary artist. Her work exists as an inquiry between the gaps of sculpture, video, installation, writing and performance. She addresses issues of identity, politics, human emotion, experience and collective consciousness through gestures that combine tangible and intangible materials.
