There are always personal ritualistic gestures on the dramaturgy of habits of every artist, bringing out of the transcendental body whatever is stored. I create as a rite of transformation. It's an experiment within material and process, reversing classical procedures. I investigate pushing myself out of the comfort to flow intuitive. A lot happens randomly. Afterwards, I build my installations as ensembles of my paintings and other objects I craft. I wish those artworks to be a room where visitors get in contact with the Now. Therefore an important part of my practice is to activate the space with collective experiences: rituals, readings, dinners, performances…
I explore through collaborative practices the notions of self care and domestic rituals and aim to co-create inner gardens; with it, I wish to collaborate to self-transformation.
