I’m working mainly in installation and performance, even though I’m firmly convinced that each project has the need for a specific aesthetic articulation, which is why the fulcrum of creation starts with the dialogue with the surroundings and the context. I’m interested in the body as a transformation territory, where the invisible becomes visible and abandons the abstract state in which inhabits the mind space, I carefully observe body’s reaction to daily life and to the diversity of emotions and states of mind that occur during life. I am also interested on how it becomes both victim and cause of our pain, that precarious equilibrium, that interstice where my research is founded. Only when a thought goes through the body, becomes real whereas in our mind is still at risk of manipulation. The real comprehension of something happens in the translation of a thought to the physicality of our body, it also happens involuntarily: the body does not lie. For this reason I’m very particularly interested in the propulsive need human beings have to ritualize. This action is our way to make our connections, our life passages and changes real. If rituals were used as a mean of transformation outside society dogmas and traditions, they can become a strong means for dialogue within ourselves what surrounds us, allowing us the space for the evolution to fully happen.

After all Darwin affirmed that: “It is not the strongest species that survive but the one that adapts better”.
