MOREAna Laura Aláez
Ana Laura Aláez (Bilbao, 1964) became known as an artist with Mujeres sobre zapatos de plataforma, a sculpture unveiled in the Espacio 13 gallery of Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona. Her first installation, She Astronauts, identified with the relational art movement, earned her an invitation from the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, where she showed he work Beauty Cabinet Prototype. There followed Dance & Disco at MNCARS, Pabellón de escultura at MUSAC in León, three installations at the 49th Venice Biennale and Bridge of Light, a permanent piece for Towada Art Center (Japan). She is currently preparing a solo exhibition at CA2M, Madrid, to be titled Todos los conciertos, todas las noches, todo vacío.
With Portadoras queer: el doble y la repetición, Aláez will explore the degrees of rebelliousness in a given representation of plural femaleness via the use of image repetition in parallel with musical repetition. 50% of this visual piece will be based on a specific electronic music project in partnership with German musician Ascii.disko. The main structure will comprise four chapters with four performances which will be interspersed with other possible narratives that arise in the making. The image and sound will be constructed in like fashion, allowing for surprises that are not in the script.
