End to End
During the ´aceNITE opening, Valerie Driscoll presented four pieces in performance and videos format that pretend to be light sculptures.
All of Driscoll’s work plays with the binomial emotion/automatism. She uses her body as a tool that replicates automatic mechanisms at the same time that it is crossed by the unpredictability of emotionality. Gestures and emotions appear as a glitch in the accepted evolution of certain behaviors and ways of socialization.
Through subtle gestures, where there seem to be errors in her movements and videos, Driscoll generates strangeness and perhaps discomfort in the spectators.
