I am interested in exploring interpersonal relationships and the way relations of different orders are established.
I always wonder.
How can I help?
What value can I bring to the world?
‘The content of my work can be everything that happens, life itself, issues and situations, feelings, ideas, relations and other material and objects from the real situations collected on my daily life. By manipulating this material through the creative process, using all kind of medium - drawing, painting, collage, encaustic, photography and video footage - I dissect, reinterpret and reintegrate new meanings into the situations. This works function as indexes, signifying my presence and consciousness in a specific space and time. I am interested in exploring the concept of history, biography, memory and document.
In my recent work approach, ‘timeLine project_inSitu’, I am focusing in the complete presence in the moment, documenting the daily situation in interaction to others. I want to promote self awareness, personal value and public participation by creating a collective work in full presence and dialogue with each other.’
