Floria Gonzalez

Floria González was born in Monterrey on July 20th, 1980. She moved to Acuña Coahuila in 1983, eventually moving to Mexico City at 16 where she currently lives and works.

Floria’s dreamlike, cinematic scenes explore alternate realities and hidden layers of the psyche. Using photography, video, installation, performance, and painting, Floria maintains a constant dialogue between fantasy and imagination, excavating forms and scenes that reconstruct her own identity through memories and experiences.

Floria has exhibited work in Mexico City, Monterrey, New York, Austin, Los Angeles, Miami, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Berlin, Italy, Hong Kong, London, and Singapore.
