Daniella Valz Gen
Daniella Valz Gen (b. 1978 in Lima, Peru) lives in works in London, UK. Valz Gen’s work explores the interstices between languages, cultures and value systems with an emphasis on embodiment. Alterity, liminality and ritual come into play through a practice that prioritises process. Whether through an engagement with materials, writing or performance, their work is preoccupied with complexity and non-linear narratives. Throughout 2019, Valz Gen has been developing the ACE funded project (Be)longing with the support of ]performance s p a c e [, a series of embodied landscape interventions through the act of burial as a way to reflect on the migrant body.
