LIVES AND WORKS
United States of America
Her multidisciplinary approach cuts across performance, photography, sculpture and installation to reveal contemplative interactions between the body and the natural word. Bianca Lee Vasquez’s auto-didact practice being very much oriented on ritual, weaves webs between flora, corporeality and the unconscious in promotion of establishing bonds with the land. Vasquez's approach correlates the recovered experiences of these interventions in nature to her performative installations or sculptures while mingling with various ecological, feminine, unconscious and spiritual themes.
Driven by the power of the moment, of the striking yet sincere - the photographic work of Bianca Lee Vasquez seeks to distil experiences from personal life - truths realised whilst exploring and wandering the outdoors with her children and friends. Used as a means to document these interventions and performances in nature, Vasquez approaches photography auto-didactically, furthering the honesty and explorative quality in each image. Her process is a series of casual interpretations linking harmony and the divine with the body and other living species. Poised nudity with unconscious sensual and spiritual undertones reverse the traditional role of women in order to reclaim female agency. At once voyeur and participant, the artist’s intimate world melts with the tangible, material and living - capturing earthly settings with a primordial quality.
Her works were exhibited in many venues such as Palais Tokyo in Paris, France ; Z42 Arte in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil ; Carré Latin Festival in Jardins du Palais Royal, France ; Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno in Spain ; or Musée National Eugène-Delacroix in Paris.
