Paz Ortúzar


I am a Chilean interdisciplinary artist and researcher, with a practice in writing and translating. My present artistic research is focused on systems of beliefs, feminism and the hegemonic standardization of knowledge in colonized territories. Through my practice I seek to apprehend and question physical, cultural, and spiritual truths. My work is composed of process-based pieces that use language, time, and found objects as raw material.

I earned a Bachelor in Fine Arts and a Certificate in Latin-American Art Aesthetics (PUC, Chile). Later on, I studied a Master in Fine Arts with an interdisciplinary focus (UPENN, USA) and an Advanced Master in Artistic Research in a Socio-Political Context (Sint Lucas Antwerp, Belgium). My work has been exhibited internationally and I have worked collaboratively with curators and artists developing exhibitions and independent curatorial projects. I am part of the collective SAPlab with US artist Lucy Cordes Engelman.
