About Mabel Valdiviezo
I am a multidisciplinary artist creating intimate and immersive experiences through film, installation, technology and dance performance to explore the intersection of identity, transnational migration, feminism, and spirituality.
In my early years as a punk performer and video artist in traditional Peru, I explored sexuality, desire, and queer identity. Today, my approach is influenced by indigenous wisdom, historical research, and embodied practice that focuses on community and gender healing.
Impressionistic moving images, luminous paintings, and ecstatic dance performances capture poignant moments of my journey from a female perspective that views healing within the body and the political context of contemporary society.
Currently, I am researching indigenous art practices from the Peruvian Andes and the Amazon to infuse them into my own multidisciplinary work while exploring emerging technologies such as AR and VR with the goal of blending them together into techno-shamanistic works of art and wellness.
My work has been featured on BBC Outlook, Forbes, Huffington Post. I am a former fellow of the Sundance Producers Conference and NALIP Producers Academy. Learn more about my film Prodigal Daughter and commercial video work at Haiku Films.
