Director Biography - Lorena Solís Bravo

Lorena Solís Bravo (1991) is a Peruvian artist & filmmaker based in Amsterdam.

In 2012 they culminated their Film foundation diploma at the London College of Communication to then continue their studies at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague graduating in 2017 from the sculpture department.

Their practice expands on different media, from sculpture and performance to film and text-based works where the topic of ‘otherness’ is at the center of it. This otherness can be seen in relation to the self (multiplicity of the self), ‘other-than-human’ (nature and matter), or to non-normativeness (queerness and the erotic).

Solís Bravo seeks to research the merging of the human with the non-human, by breaking down the division between microbes, animals, plants, and matter, they aim to propose a deeper understanding of us and the ecosystems we live in. They do this by embracing not only the scientific but the poetic, the instinctive, and the imaginary as a strategy to create new worlds that reflect on the one we live on.

Director Statement

“We are not just human, we are many things”, says Lorena Solís Bravo (1991). In their work, the artist investigates what it means to be human and how we are inextricably linked to the world around us. They start from the symbiotic idea that evolution is driven by cooperation rather than by struggle. Instead of microorganisms eating each other millions of years ago, they started forming new living structures that made new forms of life possible.
Solís Bravo's work builds on this harmonious idea by asking questions about what makes us human and what defines our identity. A recurring theme is the idea of 'the other': who you are is determined by how you relate to the people around you, but also by everything non-human around us, such as bacteria, living and non-living matter, and anything that deviates from the 'norm'.
