The works by Daniela Libertad in drawing, photography and video, explore the several relations among geometric forms, objects and her own body, the perceptions on what is intangible, mystical and their connections with everyday life.
The artist investigates also on how sculptural dynamics are constructed and deposited into objects, in an effort to understand the relations of weight, tension and balance among materials, shapes and objects.
Her body of work pushes into tension the perceptions of what is both intangible and habitual. By using different media, the artist allows her work to confront immaterial elements and geometrical forms with common objects and her own body, exploring both the mystical and ethereal features of these components, and concrete aspects such as weight, density and touch. In these tension exercises, the artist unsettles the mixture between apparently opposite fields, between physical and mental or abstract and figurative, towards a stage of precarious balance between parts that, ultimately, inform us on a fragile and banal condition of our apprehension of day-to-day poetry.
