Biography

Approaching her practice through a sociological lens, Lucia Hinojosa uses video, installation, and collage to parse questions of identity, politics, and perception. Her films bridge traditions, employing aspects of documentary filmmaking while also embracing performative actions and appropriated footage. Her collages likewise employ found images, exploring their poetic and political ramifications by inviting viewers to contemplate them through her choice of materials. “Art’s aim is to abolish its origin by eluding the structure that created it,” she has said. “The act of contemplation is so powerful because it is the remembrance of who we are as humans—of our eternal condition, and in this abstraction there is an exchange that by nature denies its materiality in order to see itself with lucidity.”
