(SPANISH TEXT BELOW – TEXTO ESPAÑOL ABAJO)
Reminiscences of my queer childhood portrayed in photography, video and sculpture. A poetic and symbolic interpretation of sexual dissidence that explores the social and family pressure on girls to become “good women.”
This solo exhibition revolves around the memory and family heritage and includes objects from my childhood that have been used for making the pieces. As a central part of this process of rebuilding the past, I have made a reproduction of the life size doll that I built as a child with my great-aunt. This was my very first body extension and formed the focal point of the Solitaire video on show during the exhibition and of the participatory performance that took place on the opening night.
The Solitaire exhibition took place in the gallery Una Pagina en Blanco in Valencia, as part of the art festival Intramurs in October 2017. More info: http://www.intramurs.org/festival/obras/solitaire/
