Juliana Rodriguez’s “Revolver Dolls: Can anyone show me the way to free?”. The show will open on First Friday, November 7th from 6p-10p. Show runs until November 28th.
Revolver Dolls is a mixed visual project with a final photographic format. Rodriguez systematically approaches various topics using dolls (mostly Barbies) as protagonists. She uses a compositional method of creating film sets, where locations are scenographically made, cameras prepared, lights arranged, space is available as a stage and the correlation of the sequences is projected in shots. This method is familiar for Rodriguez as she is a trained filmmaker. This method allows her to explore the use of Barbies instead of actors or models. Working with dolls allows characters to assume several roles and ultimately creates its own entity and visual language.
