Rodríguez Triana’s work reflects on identity. She is interested in the inherited ancestral culture and the way in which we re-appropriate that culture to make it our own. She is interested in the words «re-appropriation» and «re-elaboration» that imply recognizing something past and appropriating it to transform it. Rodríguez Triana wonders about the position of the «mestizos» regarding ancestral heritage.
In her work, Rodríguez Triana re-appropriates the thread, a material linked to ancestral cultures, delicate and capable of building strong unions, capable of repairing. Camila Rodríguez Triana uses the thread in intuitive ways guided by what (thought, feeling, memory) she is working on in each work.
Camila Rodríguez Triana has many nominations and art awards such as Best installation. Des amis du Fresnoy, Panorama 21, France (2019), Rolex Mentor and Protégé Fellowship in Visual Arts (2020), Emerging Artist Award, Rencontres Artistiques — Carré sur Seine, France (2021) and others.
