AboutAbout

statement + resume

My projects show a search for the raise of awareness of aspects that as far as I am concerned are problematic in our society. My work is connected to social environment, both political and anthropological.

I am interested in how we experience, think about and represent countries, and how people perceive and describe the spaces in which they live. My practice encompasses painting, drawing, photography,installation, site- specific and filmmaking.

My aim is that my projects grow in a collective way and I look for collaborations together with specialized people in the studied topic. My last reflexions that I show are focused on the different vital states that are created when we keep moving. Travelling from one geographic place to another and leaving our known environment and how nowadays hegemony plays everywhere.

I believe that, by providing alternative perspectives about life, art can be an agent of change. Those new perspectives, rather than the transmission of just one message, are what I look for with my work. Whether it’s my body or my objects, what I put out there among people always intends to be and subject of particular significance to every person that experiences it. The use of social convention and interpersonal codes is a very delicate task; they can touch us deeply and in many different ways. That’s where my strong commitment to the study of these matters comes from.
