Ana María Gómez López
Ana María Gómez López treads the precarious balance between scientific self-experimentation and historic investigation to question limits in the concept of life cycles. Her projects use botanical specimens, prosthetic implants, medical instruments, and other specialized tools to explore the shifting boundaries between humans and their natural environment. Research into archival materials related to history of science is a key element to her artistic practice.
Ana María Gómez López completed her MFA at the Yale University School of Art, as well as undergraduate and master’s degrees in anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania. She is currently a resident artist at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam, and has carried out artist residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, the Beinecke Rare Books and Manuscripts Library, and the Max Planck Institute for History of Science. Her teaching experience includes Bard College Berlin, Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, and the University of Pennsylvania. In 2015, she was the recipient of the Premio Nacional de Artes (National Award in the Arts) from the Universidad de Antioquia in Colombia.
