Artist's Statement

My work addresses social and political distress, such as Chile's recent
traumatic events and memory, through my own experience
as an immigrant and cultural nomad.
In my pieces, I manipulate the processes of political and social
unsteady and ever-changing memory by using aesthetic interventions
to intensify the charged imagery of former political dogmas
and iconographies that become rapidly obsolete.
“There is quite some of this anarchistic energy and humor
in Viera Gallos‘works but foremost an allegorical impulse
to keep the processes of memory critically active
by deconstructing and transforming its notorious
objects and sites.”Anke Kempkes
