Alejandra Glez (Alejandra Gonzalez Escala)
Photography and now video-art are my media of choice. My work starts with a lengthy research process working very closely with the people I seek to capture with my camera lens. I use my own image and body as the object while re-telling the stories of women from specific traumas in their personal histories. Most importantly, my own personal anxiety is inspiration during my creative process along with the many sensations it provokes in me. The thought processes I experience during my anxiety attacks are a big source of inspiration and the underlying trauma which goes back to childhood experiences are also present during my creation. Also, the macho society I live in and encounter every time I leave my house and walk down the streets of Havana, the behavior of men towards women in a social environment and women’s response, play a key role in how I translate it later into my own art. Frida Kahlo, Ana Mendieta and Iris Van Herper are my creative inspiration; all three have made clear references to life and death.
