This exhibition by Itziar Okariz (b. 1965, Spain, lives in Bilbao and Madrid) allows an over-view of the Basque performance artist’s extensive work.

About

Okariz has long been among the most important voices within the international performance scene. Finding the construction of identity is central to her practice. Growing from gender discussions – particularly those of the 1990s – a description of her work in terms of gender alone, however, does it a disservice. How language is dealt with and the possibility of shifting meaning through language are key to her current work in particular. Words and phrases are challenged using fragments, repeti-tion, elisions and new combinations, tested for the possibility of creating new semantic connections. In this, the connection of language and body and the possibility of communi-cating language in space are fundamental.
