Estudio sobre triángulo, 2016-

Residency / Solo show at The Museum of Human Achievement, Austin, TX.

Curated by Leslie Moody Castro

According to definition, a triangle is composed of three straight sides and three angles. In other words, three lines, bent at various yet specific angles together make the closed figure of a triangle. In the hands of Daniela Libertad, however, these simple properties that define the triangle are problematized in the most subtly poetic ways. During her time in residence at the Museum of Human Achievement and during the Fusebox Festival, Daniela will make the properties of the triangle her subject matter, questioning its definition through a variety of medium, and exploring how this simple, yet complex form creates relationships with space and the human body.
