1989/ Lima, Perú.

María Lucianna Aguilar, known professionally as hijadelacoca, is a Peruvian artist that renders her unique artistic practice in textile sculptures which function as a critical response to imbalanced socio-political issues with an emphasis on exploring femininity. Influenced by Eva Hesse and Louise Bourgeois, Hija’s soft and feminine works of fibre, textiles, and embroidery transcend the constraints of materiality and act as powerful visual testimonies in response to power politics.
hijadelacoca is member of the feminist group collera Red. Since 2017 has a history of political activism as performance in public spaces.
