She has been recently awarded the Develop Your Creative Practice grant by the Arts Council of England.Romero’s multidisciplinary practice spans sculpture, ceramics, textile work, writing and performance. Through her work she explores concepts of diasporic identity, ‘truth’, ‘fiction’ and their relationship to the digital age. In an attempt to once again “turn the world upside down” she creates narratives, sounds and objects that challenge a too often imposed western version of history, reflect on the myth of ‘modernity’ and draft possible futures within an extremely globalised world.
