Vanessa Donoso López's work develops through an installation process while adopting a variety of media and mechanisms including electronics, scientific experimentation, drawing and repetitive object making.
Her practice is committed to exploring concepts of transitional phenomena relevant to contemporary cross-cultural identity and narratives, its inconstancy and complexity, the potential for the loss of identity, language, and the hypothetical compatibility with original cultures.
Vanessa is represented by Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin.
