Danielle Galietti is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores the social, biological, and spiritual dimensions of embodiment. Her practice exists at the intersection of movement, dance, and sport through performance, video, photography, and mark-making. As a former competitive USFSA figure skater, Galietti interrogates the nature of aesthetic sports (ballet, figure skating, gymnastics, cheerleading, synchronized swimming, etc.) through feminist and anti-capitalist lenses. Informed by her current practice as a yoga instructor, she creates work that attempts to reconcile biological anatomy with mysticism and spirituality. Galietti investigates themes of myth, neuroscience, trauma, language, and coercion within capitalist and patriarchal frameworks as she seeks to examine the invisible social structures, mental models, and energies that shape our embodied perspective.
