STATEMENT

My work approaches the mechanisms and techniques of representation that build our experience of reality, through a critical process of questioning and challenging hegemonic narratives and the forms by which they are presented. By using a multidisciplinary approach that employs several art disciplines and fields of knowledge, I start at my own personal experience and reflection about the subject’s relationships with social, cultural and political structures. By addressing the past, I can think about the present and the social reactions arising from hegemonic situations, and relations of power and resignificance.

My artistic practice is focused on the political, historical, social and cultural situations characterized by their exclusion from official narratives, by their concealment from the field of the sensible - that is, what is visible, what is audible, what can be perceived- , by their oblivion within History, and tries to recover forgotten memories to confront the reasons behind their concealment and the conflicts underlying their repression. I try to read their topology by deciphering their history and implications with the physical and socio-political contexts and their consequences and relationships with the individual.
