IN SKIN TAGS THE ARTIST IS INSPIRED BY INTERNAL PROCESSES IMPRINTED IN THE WORKS, WHERE SHE SEARCHES FOR THE OBSERVATION OF BELIEFS AND COMPLEXES STUCK IN THE UNCONSCIOUS, AS MARKS THAT AFFECT THE PRESENT. FOR VAL, WORKING WITH THIS METAPHOR ALLOWS HER TO CONSCIOUSLY ELABORATE THEM AS PART OF A PROCESS OF ACCEPTANCE AND TRANSFORMATION. RESILIENCE IS THEN POSSIBLE BY EXPOSING ONESELF, SHOWING THE SKIN AND ITS MARKS AS A TRANS-FORMATIVE GESTURE. SAME EXPERIENCES OF THE PAST CAN GIVE US NEW ANSWERS TODAY. IT IS THUS POSSIBLE TO SHARE WITHOUT FEAR, INCLUDING ALL ONE'S NATURE.


ARTIST BIO

VALERIA SOLARI IS A CHILEAN / ITALIAN ARTIST AND DESIGNER CURRENTLY LIVING IN BERLIN. HER CURIOSITY ABOUT LIVING ORGANISMS AND HER INTENTION TO WORK WITH DEGRADABLE MATERIALS LED HER TO INVESTIGATE AND EXPERIMENT WITH THE PRODUCTION OF BIOMATERIALS. SINCE 2020 HER ARTISTIC PRACTICE FOCUSES ON THE EXPLORATION WITH THESE MATERIALS IN WHAT WE COULD CALL A COLLABORATION WITH THESE ORGANIC FORMS, SUCH AS ALGAE, MICROORGANISMS AND OTHER COMPOUNDS. VAL SEES HERSELF AS A MODERATOR AND PARTICIPANT IN THE PROCESS THAT TAKES PLACE OVER TIME, WHERE THE METAMORPHOSIS OF LIVING FORMS MANIFESTS ITSELF TOWARDS RESULTS THAT ARE AS VARIABLE AND UNEXPECTED, AS FASCINATING.
