“Laura Tabarés (León, 1991- Lugo)
Researcher◡︎cultural producer, visual artist and memeist.
Her practice unfolds from different places such as the audiovisual narration of digital fables, the collective exchange of intuitions through workshops, or the development of situated cultural projects. His interest revolves around digitality as a means of accessing other planes of reality: revealing how violence operates and speculating on other political possibilities. Her approaches are generated from the folklore of the internet, fantasy and the sensitivity of trauma, traversing certain themes through humour, confession, healing and other sensorialities. The themes she deals with are related to macho violence, feminised knowledge, feminist conspiracies, imaginaries of intimacy and dreaming peripheral futures.
