In my work, the human body becomes an arena. I use my body as a tool as a material, making it an agent that symbolizes, intervenes, preserves, and questions our systems.

I use research to explore the future and delve into the implications of being unable to return to an origin. The impossibility of restoring my own lineage has created a void, prompting me to shift towards a trans-historic and trans-identity view of the present. In this world, I create new narratives to expose the conflicts and contradictions around us.

This process has transformed my work into a network of media and agents, extending beyond the fields of art.
