Artist Statement

My performantive pieces evoke situations and emotions in everyday life. They work as emotional prosthetics that have a self-reflective feature: Feeling vulnerable in a new environment and trying to adapt to it, this situation creates fear and comical circumstances that I fix with pieces that “supply” or satisfy a need.

I explore the concept of functionality as a material and media to create ambiguity between art, design, performance and sculpture. In addiction I use other materials like fibers, electronics and found objects that combine with traditional art techniques such as drawing, sewing, photograph and video. Through my work I create ironic links between communication and sound, feminine and identity, protection and adaptation as human condition.
