Hi! My name is Romina Cristi-Olate (Rco) and I’m an artist and architect from Santiago de Chile. Life has taken me to live and work in different cities: Santiago, Montpellier, Combarbalá, Southampton, Riba-roja d’ Ebre and now Utrecht. These experiences of moving through places trigger my questions about the subjective dimension of human dwelling: how we are connected with a territory, how it influences us, how we adapt when moving, and how art can be a language that helps us to comprehend those aspects of being alive in this world. The act of walking is a transversal thread across my creative process that so far includes watercolours, subjective maps, installations and zines. I also love Urban Sketching and journaling.
I’ve been selected to participate in artistic residencies and exhibitions in Europe, have exhibited solo and collectively around Europe, ran workshops for children, youngs and adults in different countries in themes related to psychogeography, subjective mapping and urban sketching.
