Danae Valenza

Danae Valenza's practice unites sound and image, and often responds to linguistic, social or cultural references embedded in sites and materials. A common thread through her works is the sense of fluidity, connectedness and attachment between bodies.The position of the audience is considered through gestures that rearrange active and passive dynamics of 'performer' and 'listener', creating space for momentary encounters between private and public realms. Valenza’s works reveal the inherent agency of a witness or bystander, and act as poetic counterparts to overlooked moments in social histories.
