Embelecos

Sofia Gallisa Muriente

$650.00

Sofía Gallisá Muriente seeks to amplify critical positions in relation to the production of images through multiple approaches to documentation and long processes of research and accumulation. She interested in deepening the subjectivity of historical narratives and their implications, producing works that combine original and found materials, using text, image and archive as medium and subject. Her process is defined by the access and generosity she receives as a woman with a camera in an island where that is largely considered unthreatening. It’s shaped the context of her work in myriad of other ways, specifically by the way island-scale generates unexpected connections and consequences..
