Natalia Ibáñez Lario (Barcelona y Ciudad de México) lives and works in between Mexico City and Barcelona.
Natalia Ibanez Lario´s work refers to the human body and the possibility of being modified through various technologies because of aesthetic as well as racial issues and and how this generates a global wave towards westernization reflected in girls in their twenties who spread their surgeries and lifestyles via social networks, making their bodies and ways of living a consumable product and thus celebrating aggressive capitalism in times of economic recession in a cute way.
