The methodology that I use begins with the project; it involves the different artworks created during the process and the context that surrounds them. Its formalization is developed through different supports: videos registering performances, graphic design interventions and actions in public space, posters, drawings and sculptures. I work with objects and daily situations, my personal objects, adhesive stripes, adds, coins and desk materials.
I am interested in the power of fictional documents, dislocating and re-contextualizing the object. These projects are narratives built through appropriated or personal texts. I am interested, as well, in the search of the gaps, the omission, in hidden or forgotten memories, or the focalization of changes in history, its development and destruction.
The last artworks are the result of a long period of research, and each one generates the next. They are an attempt to define territories, experiences and human reactions that are linked to the socio-political formation of the present day world, the migration and exclusion and the social development of survival strategies.
Speeches reflects on disappearance of analog systems to digital, manipulating the past in contemporary discourses.
