statement

As a multidisciplinary artist and researcher, I experiment with different techniques and languages in search of a way of saying and building worlds in the world. Performance art and body memories are the common thread of my projects that include videos, photographs and installations. Likewise, I use writing as documentation of doing and as production of thought. I consider artistic practice as a form of knowledge, as a praxis of freedom. I understand art as a way of performing life, where the artist not only transforms herself in doing, but she is also a participant in that construction.
