Camila Gonzalez Corea portrait

Camila Gonzalez Corea is a Costa Rican mixed media artist based in London.

At just only 24, she is a rising star in the London art scene. Her recent achievements as an artist include being exhibited in institutions such as the Tate Modern Museum in London and Mana Waynwood during Miami Art Basel, as well as being published in places such as British Vogue and Grazia Magazine.

Her work aims to explore, from a feminist perspective, the relationship between gender and technology. Her interest is heavily focused on activism within social media platforms by showing how behaviours within these digital manifestations can ultimately affect our real lives. She studies and challenges initiatives addressing the exclusion of women in technology, focusing on their representation, or lack of, in the technological world or within technological spheres. By studying the many occurrences of unequal gender politics within said platforms, she aims to single out specific cases of disparity and provoke a dialogue among them. Passion towards this subject and her take on this particular contemporary topic has led Camila to collaborate with advertising giant M&C Saatchi on one of their newest campaigns which address exactly this issue.

Camila’s passion towards feminist activism comes from growing into a family of famous Costa Rican sportspeople where macho behaviours predominated and women either had to prove themselves worthy (to be treated as equals) or conform to the norm and be seen as different. After a lifetime of seeking approval and constant fighting, she realised how this was all wrong and how girls living her same experience need to be empowered and supported. A sisterhood needed to be created. This is why she does what she does today and why all of her pieces either thrive to evoke empowerment and fearlessness in women or seek to question the views of those making someone else feel less.

Currently, with the aim of expanding the parameters of her practice, she is looking to incorporate and explore with different mediums as well as to keep on working on collaborative projects with artists and companies which relate to the topics which her practice explores. Camila’s main aim is to be involved initiatives which she believes will change the toxic perceptions and stereotypes which exist around these topics. She aims to persist on taking an activist approach with her work, as she believes that art can be a powerful vehicle for change.
