Through a multi-disciplinary artistic practice, Valentina Alvarado Matos (Maracaibo, 1986) explores the hybridisation of the various aesthetic languages she uses – collage, ceramics, celluloid – giving rise to a dialogue in which poetry and politics make up a significant part of her work. Her work has been exhibited at the Fundación Sala Mendoza, Periférico Caracas, Henrique Faría Gallery, Oficina #1, Àngels Barcelona, Fabra i Coats, Arts Santa Mònica, and JUST Mad, among others. Her film productions have been screened at the S(8) Cinema Mostra Periférico, Xcèntric, L’Alternativa, Antimatter Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Oberhausen Festival, Festival Punto de Vista, Zumzeig, Premi Miquel Casablancas, San Francisco Cinematheque, La Casa Encendida, etc.
Early in 2020, she travelled to Canada in the context of a film residence in the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto in cooperation with the S(8) festival and ACE Cultura. In October 2020, she presented the installation project Y si ver era el fuego alongside Carlos Vásquez Méndez in the context of the LOOP Festival at the Filmoteca de Catalunya, curated by Carolina Ciuti and Marina Vinyes. She currently works and lives in Barcelona, where she is a resident artist at the La Escocesa creation factory.
