Veronica Viacava


Building a bridge between the camera apparatus and the current socioeconomic system, Viacava’s practice dwells on concepts such as the

alienation of the worker and the performativity of the photographic medium. The photographs play with the dichotomy of labour and stillness

where the concurrent anxiety derived by the necessity of producing in late capitalism are contrasted by the quietness and uselessness of

resting objects and structures.
