Manuela Viera-Gallo was born during her parents’ exile in Rome, Italy. Her point of view has been strongly shaped by the social and political violence that has affected the history of most Latin American countries and by a constant state of migration. As a consequence Viera Gallo ́s work engages preoccupations, anxieties and fears derived from her own experience. Her artistic practice presents a multidisciplinary body of work that departs from absurdity to manipulate and distort known symbols and imagery into an allegorical, fantastical and darkly comical framework that allows her to take ownership of the subsequent transformation to analyze different processes of political and social instability.
