Ana María Rueda
/Ibagué, Colombia. 1954/
Ana María Rueda has worked over the last decade on video installations and photography-based projects after working in painting and sculpture. Her work explores the archetypal forms of primordial elements in nature, from which she generates metaphorical correspondences with human experience, such as fear, loss, empathy, and pain in contemporary society. Her work examines the sacred in nature, emphasizing the existential link between the human being and the environment, as well as the interpersonal, ethical and social relationships impacted by the effect of social abuse on the environment.
She has participated in several national and international events, including: Visible/Invisible (2018) Galería Jenny Vila, Cali Colombia; La Vuelta (2018) MAMM, Medellín Colombia; La Vuelta, (2017) Les Rencontres de la Photographie Arles, France; Phoenix (2015) Luis Caballero Award, Centro de Memoria Paz y Reconciliación, Bogotá, Colombia; Correr El Telón (2014) Royal Academy of Spain, Rome, Italy; Paisaje Sin Figura (2014) (Landscape without figure), FLORA ars + natura, Bogotá; Bosque Sin Sombra (2013)(Forest without shadow), NC Gallery, Bogotá.
She lives and works in Bogotá.
