Untitled (Wanderings) is an action by artist Martina Viale, who encourages unpredictable encounters with passersby in her works.

Connecting presence, memory, history, cohabitation, meaning, silence, and a certain sense of NOW, the work is about a circular process which will gradually create a sensitive map through the development of variable and ephemeral situations. The idea of re-search, of searching again in a NOW constantly renewed. Re-searching and accumulating traces of meaning as I go, I will be using my body as a scale to blur the line between the performance space and the non-performance space to open possible dialogues between my body, the body of the viewer, time and the actual architecture of the place; it is about action-conversation; it is about a trajectory in-between; it is about an interconnected space.

Martine Viale is an action art artist. Her work, contextual and site-specific is anchored in a practice of presence. Working regularly in public space and unusual locations that can facilitate unpredictable encounters with passers-by, she seeks to create an open space in which daily interactions have the potential to become part of artistic strategies. Trying to underline the artistic possibilities hidden in the ordinary, she develops ephemeral and subtle situations that reflect on interval spaces. Everything related to territory, borders and displaced spaces is of particular interest to her. Born in Montreal, Canada, Martine Viale lives and works in Perpignan, France. Since 1999, her work has been presented in several festivals, galleries and site-specific contexts across Canada and internationally, notably in Brazil, Israel, Poland, Cyprus, the United States, Brittany, France, Belgium, Serbia, the Philippines, Japan, Scotland, Spain, Ukraine and Denmark.
