about
statement

My artistic practice is based on finding a new meaning to what has been established, through the deconstruction and reconstruction of original universes with its own rules and logic.

 

There is an analysis of the main participating elements and based on it , I give a new concept  to my  work.

I modify the pre-existing elements and ideas, I express them through a totally different concept, as a mean  to express my concerns. I'm talking about territories, gender identity, belonging where we want to belong.  

We should be able to look into ourselves to find out who we really are, what we believe in and so we can fight for our ideales.

It is through the questioning that this dichotomy between the known and the new reconstructed that can trigger in each person different interpretations.
