Nadia Granados (1978) is a Colombian artist interested in space, movement and body based art practices, such as video, installation and performance. Her work is characterized by the articulation of anti-imperialist struggles through the use of popular media tropes. She takes advantage of communication in public spaces (street/web) using her body and art as catalyst for social transformation. In her latest project LAFULMINANTE.COM she faces the camera in an absurd monologue as a demoniac performer and records, edits and produces video images that build up from the eroticism of the skin. Granados dismantles the language poses of emancipatory discourse bringing together topics of sexuality and social criticism, in doing so she speaks "from" the body of Latin American women.
