Priscila D. Claure Soruco is born and raised in La Paz, Bolivia. She is a Visual and Digital Artist, Photographer and Poet and is currently based in San Francisco, California.
She has a Master in Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute and a BA in Graphic Design and Visual Communication from the UCB.
As a proud Latina Woman, her projects are a visual and conceptual reemergence of ecofeminism; shaped within decolonizing narratives that actively reject the false passivity of nature and the female, and at the same time disregard the prevailed male gaze.
She is reclaiming the female power, showing different experiences, yet experienced only by women. The “self” is highly relevant in her work. She is interested in showing the parameters between the connection and separation of the self-reclaiming body as a space where the struggle occurs, using constructed actions as a vehicle for questioning ideas and raising questions about the role of these experiences inside a patriarchal world, re-presenting these bodies, their sexuality and subjectivity.
Her personal work reflects upon the lateral reality we live in, shattering isolated parts of surrealism to mimic the creation or destruction of life. Making visible what for others is invisible and the power of illusions that are able to transgress nature, is her closing purpose.
