Claudia’s work is concerned with exploring social behaviour in contemporary society. Central to all her work is the language of behaviour, specifically the play between public and private identity. Inspired by popular culture, the pages of magazines, the Internet, selected memories and exchanges, it is an attempt to get behind immediate outward appearances and capture something of our state of mind.
Why Claudia joined the project
I was attracted to the project primarily because I am interested in the theme of portraiture and since the children are actively involved in producing work themselves, we shall be able to see the world through their eyes. I also hope to raise awareness of the children’s lives in Bolivia and highlight this special cause.
