Dominican artist Amanda Valle will exhibit her work at Art Basel Miami, one of the most prestigious contemporary art fairs to be held in that Florida city, starting December 1.
The installation that the artist will exhibit, specifically at the Spectrum Art Fair, in Mana Wynwood, is based on deep reflections and personal experiences that go back ten years.
Valle explains that the inspiration for her work was born after going through divorces and other scourges of life.
“Latent Life”, as the artist has baptized the installation, is a mound of shredded paper inside a Plexiglas box that evokes other people’s stories, those moments that once told and that end up as waste.
It is a reflection that goes from importance to transience, from curiosity to expectation. “With this proposal I seek to reflect on life, its cycles and time,” says Amanda Valle.
From the physical work to be exhibited at Art Basel Miami, 33 unique digital cubes or NFT (non-fungible cryptographic token) will be sold to the public.
Those interested will have access to a wallet where they can buy them, these at the same time have the option to exchange it for the physical one that will be at a lower price than the digital one. “Each NFT forms the different stages, the cube gives the content to life, the role is life itself. The cube is the body, the role is the soul”, highlights the artist.
About Amanda Valle
Amanda Valle is a multidisciplinary artist born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, in 1984. The only child of a single mother, she spent most of her early years at home. An ordinary and settled life on the surface, Amanda filled her time drawing the worlds and colors that lived in her mind with the views from the window becoming her first muses for her self-expression.
Amanda later left the island and moved to the United States, which led her to participate in several events, such as Art Basel Miami 2017, Salone del Mobile Milan 2018 (Nilufar Gallery). Her latest work, the short film “Back in the Island” has been selected in more than 15 festivals winning the Best Generation Award, Best Photography and Best Dominican Documentary.
Since 2019 she lives and works between Dominican Republic and New York dedicating her time to painting and artistic experimentation. She is represented by Molin Corvo Gallery in Paris, France.
