ARTIST STATEMENT //
Art should be in conversation with the culture as a whole.
It should run after the need to go further in time and each time should be seen as a sort of upheaval, culturally, artistically, engaging with the infinite possibilities out there. The role of art is making something to say about it and show it, give it to the world. If there is nothing to say, then why make art?
Language has the power to deal with that. Colours, images, shapes or forms construct all rest.
ART PRACTISE //
The artistic process she is fascinated about is the exploration of sense and nonsense and their combined effects on reality. She works with the combination of visual and acoustic space, virtual and physical realm, poetry and language in a performative and immersive experience for the audience. Often the body is her place from where she start to think, where experiences are transferred from the outside to the inside and vice-versa, making the body a medium as well.
Her works were exhibited both in Barcelona and Amsterdam and she has been participating in different art competition such as The Luxemburg Art Prize, the Amsterdam edition of the 3rd Near-Field Communication Digital Art Biennale and at IASIS second edition TILT Platform in Greece.
She recently won the art competiton #Lassnigbyme at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam among more than 300 participants. Her artworks are currently on the Stedelijk Museum webpage and Instagram account.
