Xiomara Virdó is a multidisciplinary artist and performer. She is currently studying at the Large Glass Department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, and originally trained in classical ballet and contemporary dance.
In the professional field, she has gained experience working as a performer, dancer, singer and organiser, among other things. She uses performance, sculpture, video, installations and sound to interrogate what is seen as a ‘body’ and what isn’t, how bodies are experienced, and how different embodied experiences inform our perception of reality.
For her end of residency presentation Xiomara will be presenting her research and work in progress on the tension between the queer desire to be someone, to be with someone, or to destroy them/be destroyed by them. Examining this trope through pop culture, movement, and queer theory, she will be sharing some of her explorations during her residency at 11:11.
