Over the course of a few years, Daniela Libertad’s work has taken different paths: text as drawing, word as statement, statement as form, the object, object as sculpture, object as a record of movement. Libertad, working off of certain concrete premises, has channeled her production into a variety of media. She approaches concepts via an insistence on cycles and, through this, shows that the medium is both a record of the research process and the concept. Thus a circle is a pretext for action, that action is translated into video and that video is yet another pretext for recording a fleeting circle — in the same way that a gesture of the body is an imprint of its personal space, of the reach of its arms, of a diameter centered on its axis.
