CV — 2022


Paloma Bouhana is an artist and designer based in Eindhoven. Adopting a research-based working
approach in most of her projects she uses methodologies she acquired during her academic studies as a critical part of her artistic practice. Shifting her approach permitted her to orient her research towards blind spots in mainstream economics.
Her installations combine mediums like video, performance, scenography and costume design.
        Stemming from a longstanding interest in the relationship between hands and feet, women and labour, but also from the fear of ever becoming employable, in her last work, she looked at the shoe manufacturing industry across Italy, the Netherlands (and beyond) as an illustration of the decline of
material labour.
