La galerie de la Biennale

A shadow theatre: babies’ prams casting enormous silhouettes on the walls, glasses full of a red liquid that could just as easily be blood as wine, pieces of fabric theatrically caught in the light beam of an imageless projector. Eulalia Valldosera’s drama suggests a constellation of moments centred on the body, the privacy of the domestic and objects from everyday life. Female archetypes play a central role in her work, which dissects and examines the family setting, maternity, bodily fluids and the male gaze. Even the titles of the works – "The Kitchen", "The Period", "The Streetlamp", "Dependencies" –draw on the notion of a stage on which the world’s future is played out. The possibilities of action for viewers – changing the order of the fabrics, pushing the pram-projector along its rails – are scenarios beyond the artist’s control and immune to the protective strategies of the host venue.

With the support of the Seacex, Madrid.
