My work deals with cycles of time and metamorphosis. Challenging the body’s endurance through duration, I am interested in suggesting multiple stages of working rather than a completed product. Active in performance, action art and photography, my work focuses on process-action and the corporeality of space and time that allow for simultaneous multidimensional developments producing installations grounded in performance. The ideas of transformation through time and accumulation play a major role in the creation of each work. My body becomes a “doing body” engaged in creating, layering and collecting traces of actions, which progressively transform the space and myself.
