Artist Statement

Exploring the subjectivity of personal objects, my work is configured under a kind of archaeology of displacement and memory. It allows me to question and re-shape the physical, emotional and cultural limits of the gendered body and its connection to place. Interweaving social and personal experiences, my sculptures and installations intend to embody the multilayered relations involved in the construction of our identities. Textiles are for me a rich sculptural material and performative resource, with innumerable formal advantages and symbolic possibilities. Clothes are a central aspect of my creative process, becoming a site of exchange and a form to negotiate a sense of self in relation to the world, with others, and with ourselves.
