The core theme in the works of Marta Pujades is identity, meant as the mirror that reflects others’ visions and how society assigns each individual a role. Inquiring into the connotations and meanings entailed in the use of portraiture, Pujades’ interest is understanding how individual, collective or objective identities are generated and how they are channelled through visual representations. A Stylized Repetition of Acts is a survey of masculinity within the framework of classical dance. Through an expanded conception of the photographic portrait, the portrait as a performative process until others’ appropriation and acceptance of representations, she offers a study of the male body mediated by the imaginary of ballet, which reveals some of the concerns, phobias and challenges related to notions of gender identity.
