Catalina Barroso-Luque‘s current practice focuses on the interrelation between the senses and writing, investigating how the crossovers between language, sculpture and auditory experiences affect our relationships to others. In her work narrative is used as a means of navigating inter and intra-personal relationships through the construction of spaces of imaginary projection and fantasy. How these interactions are mediated and fetishized through technological apparatuses also plays an important role in her work, involving the discreet incorporation of digital media or the allusion to such. Within this the artist has been increasingly concerned with twisting the ways in which technologies are gendered in their design, materiality and use.
