This information may change due to ongoing research. Glossary of Terms

Valeska Soares creates poetic sculptural installations with a variety of materials, often including found objects. By extracting these objects from their original context and redeploying them, she borrows the symbolic associations of their original use while imbuing the objects with new life to explore interpersonal bonds within frameworks that allude to narratives from mythology, literature, and art history. Soares’s installations, which are conceptual in nature and site-specific, are meant to address what she describes as “the often complex relationship with how we perceive, experience, and record time, and how this plays out in our collective and individual memory.”
