My artistic practice reflects on the idea of limit, explored through the impossible compresence of opposite movements. Looking at the human form and its relationship with gender and environmental space, I am interested in understanding and challenging different power structures. I focus on how reality systems are produced and perceived, and how perception influences the way we inhabit our realities. Translation is therefore for me the space of potentiality, of transformation. 

  I am interested in the space originated when a definition is avoided or misplaced, when a form of reality is translated or read through a different system. I also think of translation as the process of transformation of physical and metaphysical structures, reflecting on what from the transformation originates and gets lost, and the liminal space of failure. 

  My recent work on Rituals challenges established ritualistic forms, within the freedom of mistranslation.
