Statement

I am a researcher, nonconformist, aspiring poet, escapist and Formula-1 lover. I use artistic thinking as a tool to think about life, to relate to the world and to understand art itself. In this attempt to do philosophy with art, my search emerges from the cultural, artistic or sentimental conflicts and interests that any context presents in my life. I make art because it allows me to interpret reality on my own terms or to escape from it if necessary. So, I can build an anarchic, romantic and contradictory world... an imperfect paradise where nothing is impossible.

The form and topics of my work originate liberally from the oscillation I experiment amongst fascination or curiosity (modes of exploration) and academic boredom or non-conformism (tools of renovation or change). Since my practice comes about to chaos or crisis constantly, it has developed into a method of expansion and of arrangement, where the subjects I work with cover a vast range: art, poetry, culture, technology, sports, dreams, creativity, feminism, identity, productivity…

In my research, I resort to artistic, architectural, scientific and philosophical methodologies, tools and knowledge. I use different artistic mediums and media (drawing, video, animation, digital images, objects, performance, installation…) and forms of production (organization of events, publications, workshops, research projects: about video-art, video games, home-made videos, radio).

I am trying to become an artist that meddles in her context; builds reality or refracts it poetically; expands her actions within society; makes art consistent with the paths of her life, and that produces thinking according to the XXI century´s demands.
