Gabriella Torres Ferrer
Gabriella Torres-Ferrer is a multimedia artist and researcher whose practice considers futurability, new digital epistemologies and subverts hegemonic narratives; power dynamics and means of exchange in a globalized networked society. For Liste 2022, Embajada will present a solo booth of new work from the ongoing series "Mine Your Own Business" that critiques the current digital environment and explores the dynamics of appropriation and commodification of personal data that surrounds our daily life. The series consists of found objects implanted with microcomputers displaying diverse data scraped from the internet; the information ranges from personal data of the artist, real time market values and virtual currency mining.
Torres-Ferrer’s (b. 1987 Arecibo, Puerto Rico) work has been featured in the Occupy Museum’s 2017 participation at the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), El Museo del Barrio (New York) and online at The Wrong New Digital Art Biennale. In 2020 Torres-Ferrer received the CERN’s (Genève) guest artists prize and was enrolled in the Akademie Schloss Solitude international Artist-in-Residence fellowship. In 2021 Torres-Ferrer was selected by Cecila Alemani to participate in Unfinished Camp held at The Shed New York. The artist will be included in a three-person exhibition opening April 2–May 29 at CCS Bard entitled Operational Excellence curated by Isabella Achenbach.
