Ana González Barragán


Ana González Barragán (b. Mexico City, 1989) is an artist and researcher interested in examining the particularities of different stones, minerals, and other geological bodies anchored to historical and political narratives. Through her lens, stones encapsulate the complex relationship between Western civilization and the more-than-human. Ana’s work is informed by a non-static dialogue connecting the nuances of post-industrial capitalism and patriarchy with dominant narratives that commodify the body and natural resources through various processes of extraction. By combining geological bodies, mine-recovered objects, ceramics, and time-based media, Ana’s work offers evocative provocations to undertake reflection processes about the culture/nature divide across different regions and historical moments.
