PERSONAL STATMENT

        I define my work as transdisciplinar by the integration and search of solutions through the intersection between art and sciences. Despite having an undefined horizon, they integrate, organize and merge, keeping the body as the character that transits between macro and micro, public and private.

The body becomes pivotal in an aesthetics full of rituals and ancestral signs, keeping it close to the material that constitutes, this same material that stimulates the denial and disgust. I consider this composition a development mechanism of an aesthetics considered alternative, expanded and a lot of times organic, processing in platforms in times traditional and technical; fluids, blood, remains, oxidation, putrefaction and recycling.

The feminine, the decolonization, deconstruction of privileges, syncretism, indigenous issues, gender, politics, memories and psychosis – these subjects, among others, are frequent in my work that is triggered by my own biography.

Just like insanity, art wasn’t a choice, it was a need. I view in art a kind of resistance and liberation, a re-processor method and multiple perspectives without development limits, questioning and mostly inclusive.
