Natacha Voliakovsky’s (they/she) practice takes place at the intersection of queer-rights, sudaca-feminism and the reclamation and occupation of our own body as an extension of the public space. Using performance as a vehicle for her message, Voliakovsky’s work is profoundly related to the South American context and its diaspora’s fight towards social change.
As a High-Testosterone Jewish woman from Argentina, Voliakovsky’s work delves into the use of corporality in actions to generate questions about social problems and the liberation, reimagination and shapeshifting of our world into a better one. Aiming towards physiological and somatic healing, Voliakovsky aspires to explore reaching a state of complete autonomy within our bodies. They are interested in deconstructing the social body and use it to address issues of gender identity, self-perception, migrant bodies and discrimination.
Their current practice explores embodiment and dissociation through process and performance, located in public space. They have carried out public actions in marches and demonstrations, and are investigating social behavior in public spaces as an extension of the oppressive gender dynamics that constrain us as we inhabit them.
