Ana Patiño

Ana Patiño is a multi-disciplinary artist, born in Colombia and currently works and lives in Germany. She studied fine arts in Bogotá and completed a master’s degree in digital media at the HFK Bremen. 

She structures her work by using the subtle humor that is produced by the idea of fiction and reality. By being a spectator of her own internal processes and the relationships within the neoliberal system she questions verticality and objectivity in relation with mental health and emotions. 

Reality and fiction often change their shape and stand in mutual tension. These partly parallel, partly overlapping, fine ridges are guidelines of her artistic process. Her method is like a rhizome - growing and dividing horizontally. It determines the course of her work. She resorts to the medium of video, which allows her to manipulate time.
