Rosario López Parra (born in Bogotá, Colombia, in 1970) combines landscape photography and sculptural installation to explore nature and the eruption of forces within it. López Parra does not map or document landscape but seeks to transform unseen forces of wind and temperature into tangible sensations, using photographs of structures and the installation of these structures within the gallery to visualize the invisible and create a sculptural space between object, spectator, and gallery. Although she draws on Minimalism and Land Art, her work diverges from these traditions, as she merges the political and transcendental and then returns the work to the gallery space opening a continuum between nature and the white cube, landscape and its representation. López Parra lives and works in Bogotá, where she teaches at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. López Parra’s work has been shown in South America and internationally, with solo exhibitions at Casas Riegner Gallery (Bogotá, 2010, 2012), KBK Gallery (Mexico City, 2009), Nara Roesler Gallery (Sao Paulo, 2009), and Atelie Da Imagen (Rio de Janeiro, 2007). She has taken part in group exhibitions at galleries and museums such as the Musée National des Beaux-Arts (Québec, 2012), Palais de Tokyo (Paris, 2008), the 52nd Venice Biennale (2007), the Museum of Modern Art (Bogotá, 2000, 2004), and the Sofia lmber Museum of Contemporary Art (Caracas, 2001.
