Natalia Palacino Camargo (b. 2001) is a Colombian artist born in Bogotá D.C. and based in New York City. Through her work, she is interested in pushing the boundaries of the body and exploring how it is impacted by the cultural, social, and environmental landscape of Colombia and the USA. For the past years, she has explored the overarching theme of “body politics” in an attempt to understand the practices and systems through which the human body is regulated. The paradoxical control that human animals possess and exert over our environment and the battle over individual and social control over our own bodies. In May 2023, she will be receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from New York University.
