Goretti Pombo
1994, Willemstad, Curaçao
Living in Rotterdam, The Netherlands
At first glance, my works function as a distraction from reality.

Beyond that layer, those works are retellings and results of my own

bizarre experiences.

Freedom and feminism often take the lead as underlying topics in my work.
