Valérie Reding works at the intersection of performance, dance, photography and video and uses her body to explore the potential of empathy, vulnerability, transformation and drag in order to question norms and stereotypes of gender, sexualities and identities. She had been trained in ballet and contemporary dance and received a BA in Media Arts at the Zürich University of the Arts as well as at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Her works have been shown in galleries such as Commonwealth & Council (LA), FORMA Arts Contemporains (Lausanne) or LAC (Vevey) and she has performed at festivals like zürich moves! (Zurich), The Queer Biennial II (LA), La Fête du Slip (Lausanne) as well as Deep Trash by CUNTemporary (London).
