Sra Polaroiska

Alaitz Arenzana and Maria Ibarretxe are the creators of Sra Polaroiska en Sillón de Taller. Alaitz Arenzana is graduated in Audiovisual Communication. From his early work as an artist, made it clear that her works would be linked to research and creative practices closer to the art world, than the more industrial interests of the image. Maria Ibarretxe, Diplomated in Dramatic Art, comes from the world of theatrical creation and performance in addition to working as a dancer and actress in different companies. Their collaboration has resulted in the permeability of these two worlds in an intermediate position.

The audiovisual work of Sra Polaroiska centers on action art, scenic and choreographic creation. Their work is based on the search for other spaces and languages, where the body and its relationship to space is always the main character. They run away from conventional narrative structures and closed concepts to the viewer. Their works, intentionally ambiguous, play the roles associated with the body, destabilizing the eye of the beholder, forcing him to position themselves in what they are seeing. The viewer is fully immersed in their world, in the space they have created. However is an open space, where there are multiple interpretations, as many as the eyes that have seen what happened on screen.
