Patricia Domínguez was born in Santiago, Chile in 1984. Bringing together experimental research on ethnobotany, healing practices and the corporealization of wellbeing, her work focuses on tracing relationships of labor, affect, obligation and emancipation among living species in a cosmos that is ever more corporatized in nature.
Her major projects have been exhibited at CentroCentro (Madrid); Gasworks (London); Momenta Biennale (Montréal);Columbus Museum of Art (Ohio); Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA, Seoul); CentroCentro, The Future is Not What Will Happen, but What We Will Do, ARCO and Twin Gallery (all in Madrid); El Museo del Barrio, Bronx Museum, The Clemente, Yeh Art Gallery (all in New York); FLORA and Liberia (both in Colombia); Meet Factory (Prague); Centro Cultural España, CCU, MAC, MAVI and Galería Patricia Ready (all in Chile), among others.
Among her upcoming exhibitions are the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum (Madrid) in 2020, Gwangju Biennale (South Korea) and La Casa Encendida (Madrid) in 2021 and The Wellcome Collection (London) in 2022.
Her studies include a Master’s Degree in Studio Art from Hunter College, New York (2013) and a Botanical Art & Illustration Certificate from the New York Botanical Garden (2011). She has recently been the recipient of the Fundación AMA Grant (2017), the Media Art Award from Fundación Telefónica and the 3rd Norberto Griffa Prize (both 2014), among others.
