Victoria Fornieles  
 
Fornieles investigate how representations of the female body within landscape can affect the way in which we culturally understand gender, identity and geography. She uses her body as a tool, a camera and a mark making device. There is an interest in the apparent indexicality of truth, memory and space perception which delimit restrictions within the photographic medium, whilst highlighting cultural perceptions of space and beauty in art and life. 
 
By combining camera based and camera-less techniques in the darkroom Fornieles work sets out to subtly subvert the indexical characteristics of photography. She explore the relationship between projected boundaries, limits of perception, photography, performance and the body. There is a playful, physical, performative reflection of the subject matter in the darkroom process. The photographic paper gets held to her body in various poses leaving echos of physical traces, bodily excretions, hair and fingerprints merging subject matter, action and photographic form.
