Diana Sofia Lozano

Diana Sofia Lozano (b.1992, Cali, Colombia), is an artist based in Brooklyn, NY and New Haven CT. Her work uses the language of botanical hybrids; the naturally occurring, genetically modified, and the imagined. Lozano presents biomimicry as metaphors for identity construction at the intersections of gender, sexuality, and race. She is interested in the deconstruction of botanical taxonomic failures in order to reveal and redefine the boundaries of colonial identificatory practices and geopolitical borders.
