Salomé Cosmique is a Colombian artist, educator and curator currently living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, (USA).

She has a degree in visual arts  from the University of Strasbourg in France.

In 2012, (while in France) she obtained her National Diploma of Plastic Arts, with a concentration in sound arts from the School of Arts of the Rhine (Haut École D'art du Rhin) in Mulhouse, France. Upon finishing her studies, she moved to Puerto Rico, where she participated in several collective and individual exhibitions at the Tibes Ceremonial Center, the Museum of the Americas and at the Art Biennial of Ponce among others.

 

In 2017, Salomé  moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,  (USA) where she has continued to develop her artistic, curatorial and educational career. She is currently a curator of Dissident Bodies and works as an educator at The Barnes Foundation.

 

For Salomé, the arts form a positive vehicle which can bring beneficial changes to society as well as the potential to transform lives, art as a healer, something she promotes in her artistic pursuits. Since 2012, her performance work has been inspired by colonialism, immigration, women's inequality and dissident bodies. Through her pictorial work the artist seeks to remember the memories of our ancestors. She has exhibited in France, Colombia, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Chile, Brazil and Philadelphia.

ARTIST STATEMENT

As an artist I am interested in the political, social and healing power of the arts. I believe that one of the best weapons for the transformation of society is through the arts which is why I consider myself an activist and a multidisciplinary artist. Through the use of different mediums (painting, drawing, sound and performance) I allow myself to express my diverse political, historical, anthropological and spiritual interests. One of the objectives of my work is to remember our memories, where we came from, and who our ancestors were, because if we do not remember our history, we will be unable to effect change and we will continue to repeat the same mistakes. 
 
I see my performative actions as part of my activism and as a symbol of protest. As an artist I am interested in the inequality of women, dissident bodies, immigration and colonialism. Through my performances I use my body as a vehicle of protest, allowing the public to interact with my body so that they may also live the experience and to be a part of the work itself.
