Argentine, 1985

Valentina Díaz

Her work centers on the production of textiles and characters which give rise to performances where the relationship between the human and the machine, the emotional time and the time of a metronome, frequently appear in friction. The constructive pattern of the textile configures a score that guides the movements of each of the characters, while serving to explore diagrams associated with processes of varying complexity. Continuous translation operations, fictitious scenes and elements that reinforce the control mechanisms of the body, are part of the constructive system of understanding and passing through specific emotional states.

She studied Visual Arts in the Universidad Nacional de Tucumán, Argentina (2011) and participated in the Programa Educativo SOMA, Mexico City (2016-2017). She received a grant from Talleres de Producción y Seguimiento de Obra del Fondo Nacional de las Artes (2012-2014). She was awarded the Travel Grant of the Oxenford Collection (2015), the Prince Claus Fund Movility Prize (2017), the Beca Creación Fondo Nacional de las Artes (2017), and the Beca Roberts Escuela Flora (2019).
