Born in Bolivia, raised in Chile and since 2004 living in Switzerland, Ximena Lama is an artist who makes collages with magazine cutouts as well as installations and sculptures.
Ximena Lama's art wanders between the then and the now, seeking unification through the continuity of the image and stops to focus on detail.
It represents aspects of society, human behavior and its environment; a representation that goes hand in hand with consciousness. And this emotion materializes through the plane and the volume, the paper and clay.Part of her artistic process is to be inspired by the beauty of the material: it’s color, texture and shape. Women inspire her as well as contrast and poetry. In this way, her works points the viewer towards new worlds, worlds that are not very distant because finally we are all part of them.
"Growing up in Bolivia and Chile, Ximena Lama, who lives in Switzerland, is inspired in her collages by materials, textures, contrasts and magazine images from the past and the present. This results in colorful parallel worlds full of messages" 20.03.19_Bernese newspaper
"his collages, installations and sculptures give me a sense of clarity that I wish after seeing an art exhibition" 19.03.19_Nora Osayuki Osagiobare_Bernese cultural agenda
