Originally from Bogota, Colombia, Andrea Peña is a multidisciplinary artist whose creative practice transverses the fields of art installation, choreography and design. Founded in 2014, Andrea Peña & Artists is recognized within Canada and internationally for her creation of critical, alternative and spatial universes that rupture our notions of a sensible humanity and engage in deep encounters between the physical body and the self.
