Art discipline: 
Helena Ospina Lizarralde is a native-born Colombian artist currently living and working in Berlin. Ospina Lizarralde works across different media including ceramics, weaving, video, performance, and installation in order to explore the interrelationship between the natural world and human existence. Each one of her works departs from questions that arise from her interest in understanding her own being and our existence in this world. In her practice, she searches for answers while generating questions to create a space of reflection in which the spectators can delve into their own inquiries. 

Ospina Lizarralde’s work emerges from different practices she develops to understand her own existential questions, always standing in the intersection between art and philosophy. In her current ongoing research, she addresses the fundamental issue of time. Reflecting upon our relationship with it and how our existence is determined by its social understanding.
