1. My multidisciplinary practice includes video, poetry, painting, installation, and photography. The subjects of my work are landscape, ruins, and fragmented residual objects. Through these diverse media that are in constant dialogue, I search for images of contemporary landscape intervened by human. Regarding landscape, I’m interested in the intersection of urban, rural, and industrial sites. This intersectional place, for me, embodies the idea of “interruptions” in a landscape. These interruptions generate a state of disorientation, where different objects seem to be part of an unplanned use of the land. That use of the land reflects the contradictions of the society that inhabits a specific space.


    Ruins is a cross-cutting subject matter within my work, from which I approach degradation of human-made constructions and objects from a contemplative gaze of beauty. I depict the beauty of the ruinous landscape through different media, designing compositions where the void is an active element in a painting or a tridimensional piece. Particularly in video format, I work with silence, slow pace, fixed-takes, and minimal music. Collaborative art-making with artists, writers, and musicians is fundamental in my practice, participating in a kind and profound dialogue that multiplies the artwork’s layers, expanding the piece in unsuspected directions.
