Hi, I’m Romina!
I’m an artist and architect from Santiago de Chile. Life has taken me to live and work in different cities: Santiago, Montpellier, Combarbalá, Southampton, Riba-roja d’ Ebre and now Utrecht. These experiences of moving through places trigger my questions about the subjective dimension of human dwelling: how we are connected with a territory, how it influences us, how we adapt when moving, and how art can be a language that helps us to comprehend those aspects of being alive in this world. The act of walking is a transversal thread across my creative process that so far includes watercolours, subjective maps, installations and zines.
