In my performances, sculptures, photographic works and video installations, I explore relations between bodies, objects and spaces. Using ambiguity and the principle of chance as a methodology to deconstruct internalized processes, norms and values deeply embedded within our societies, I create transient ‘realities’ that explore new strategies for connecting us with the world and with others. This becomes particularly apparent in my participatory performances where I use choreographic elements, sound and wearable props to engage the public as actors in my work.
