My work has no center: it feeds on transformation. Uncertainty is my field.
My practice explores the infinite possibilities that open up in gestation, in germination, in the human ability to give meaning and create new stories, in the translation of languages, contexts, processes.
The freshness of the event is my time: from time of sequence to time of simultaneousness where each repetition is a process of knowledge, rumination on reality.
I take care that the media I use embody a request and I rely on the 5 senses to create an open, layered, generative experience.
My goal as an artist is to welcome complexity, not as mere holism, but to perceive and weave contradictions, different levels of reality so they can echo in harmony.
My aim is to reach, through my practice, a horizontal glance, in between things, among us. To walk two roads at the same time.
I take care of the process and I don't force events, I go with them. This way, my works are born in my arms and in the arms of people close to me.
