In 2012 they were a fellow in Beta Local (San Juan) and for 2020 they got the CERN's (Genève) guest artists prize and also won the Akademie Schloss Solitude international Artist-in-Residence fellowship around the topic "Mutations" (Stuttgart).
Gabriella’s work challenge viewers to untangle their complex networks of literary, artistic and historical references, while simultaneously inviting them to reconsider their own relationships with the works and the general culture that frames them. It is broadly concerned with subverting hegemonic narratives and what it means to be a body in the world. Often opening questions about possible futures, or addressing new realities such as the taken-for-granted digital reality we live in; the structures of power and means of production and exchange in this age of the internet and cybernetics.
