Angélica Omaña

Tijuana, B.C , 1992

Tijuana, BC, 1992, Mexico. Visual artist with a marked interest in medicine and hospital environments. His parents worked in a public health institution, for which he spent much of his childhood between clinics and hospitals; and for almost a decade he has been working there as mayor. Now he incorporates his observations and experiences in his artistic production. Through the recovery and selection of debris from his work environment, he searches the memory of objects to carry out a large part of his work. In his painting, animation and assembly he builds visual compositions with elements or objects in repetition contention. Omaña's work revolves around his understanding of medicine, disease and health systems in Mexico, as well as the dichotomies that are generated in relationships: hospital – patient, patient – medicine, medicine – disease.
