Statement

My practice is an ongoing research on the intersection of art, historical narratives and international relations. In a world that is increasingly interconnected but visibly more fragmented, global issues such as political economy, identities and sovereignty are some of the concepts I aim to entwine in my work. I seek to shed some visibility over specific social and political questions, and I try to answer them as I remind myself that history is a fickle and fallible tapestry of contingencies. My formal concern and methodology is to find solutions listening carefully to history, archives and people; I rely on my intuition and let my research mature until it determines its own path. Rather than being attached to a particular technique I thrive in new materials and production speculation.
