Artist's Statement

Adriana Varella is a photographer and video artist. She produces works in multiple media: installation, video and audio, photos, drawings, sculpture, performance, and site-specific public art projects. She has a permanent public art project installed in Palo Alto, CA. A 300 pages book about her work was published in 2011. Her last work is
"Transar in Cityscapes " It is about architecture and how she can subvert its patriarchal dimension; this project/performance seeks to desecrate architecture and demonstrate how some of its specific design works as a symbol of power. Built by and for the patriarchy; churches, museums, banks, limousines, mosques, military forts, castles, urban symbols and all kinds of government buildings are part of the architecture of oppression and domination that we intend to transgress and transform.We are using sex in public space as a revolutionary process leading to social mutation and metamorphosis.
