Marta Pujades
A stylized repetition of acts
Premi Ciutat de Palma
Antoni Gelabert d'Arts Visuals 2016

«A stylized repetition of acts» constitutes a revision of masculinity represented in classical ballet. A conceptual and formal analysis capable of blurring the conventions and prejudices that often define gender stereotypes in this field and moving them to another level of reflection where feminist criticism plays a key role.

By means of an expanded reading of photographic portrait -through which the image can be converted into sound, object or even performance- the artist explores the treatment of dancer's body from different patterns of repetition and behavior. A system of repetition that, beyond the context of ballet, invites a critical updating of the notions of identity, both male and female.

Text by David Armengol.
