YOLANDA DORDA

Yolanda Dorda born in Barcelona, Yolanda Dorda grew up in A Coruña. She has always been linked, in one way or another, to art, which led her to begin her artistic studies at the Pablo Picasso School of Art, opting for sculpture as a specialization. It was in London that painting became her main means of expression. It was there that she came into contact with English painters and expressionism, and their influence was clear in her works. In her canvases you can appreciate a certain cosmopolitanism that comes from her English experience, but also from her time in New York, Barcelona and Slovenia, connecting with the artistic environment of these cities. Since its inception, in addition to her artistic residencies, Dorda has participated in numerous meetings of artists, being selected for workshops organized by the MACUF, and also by the CIEC Foundation. Furthermore, she has won numerous awards in many art competitions, and her work can be found in some important collections and institutions.

"As far as the visual arts are concerned, I believe that drawing is the medium that comes closest to human thought. In my works of art, I try to facilitate the vital questions without neglecting the daily problems of man. From the big picture to the small and vice versa. From wanderings to concrete ideas. From worldly everyday life to the search for meaning. Order and chaos as unity in my head.“

Qu’est ce que tu penses, Sèverine?

„The three-part project Grandmother's House is about the attempt to free oneself from the cultural pressures of being a woman. Its narrative is inspired by my grandmother, a former small-town beauty queen who closed herself in a shell and dedicated her life to nurturing her beauty after a tragedy in her youth. The final part of the trilogy, is based on Luis Bunuel’s film Belle de Jour (1967). In the film, Catherine Deneuve plays the coolly ethereal, bored housewife, Séverine, who beneath her closed outer shell gives in to the sadomasochistic daydreams that obsessively drive her, and ultimately lives out her fantasies by secretly working in a brothel. Like Séverine, my grandmother kept up the impeccable appearances of petty-bourgeois life, but I don’t know what went on under the surface, what she dreamed of doing, what her fantasies were. In my imagination I filled the void left by my grandmother’s inaccessible inner life with the figure of Séverine in the series: Qu’est ce que tu penses, Séverine? /What are you thinking Séverine?“

CURRENT - Bathroom rituals to purify ourselves into an improved goal - conforming under controlled water directed by man-made pipes. A tunnel vision with a limited belief that healing requires cleansing. But... We are made of water and healing is about connecting with our current. Poor a glass of bottled water into the wild ocean and it will no longer be still. For once we harmonize with our truth, we will inhale the waves of change and embrace the saturated fluidness of becoming.”
