Artist Statement:

“I’ve been experimenting with collage in different ways for the last 10 years. My visual research is focused on the appropriation and reframing of images found in digital collections. I’m interested in creating fragmented narratives in video (cyclic films) and publications and sharing my everyday practice on my social media accounts. The themes of my research are wide in scope, but mostly focused on the vicissitudes of war, the misogyny of androcentrism, the mechanisms of desire, and the deterioration of the public debate.

Collage means reshaping reality, and modifying the perspective so we can understand different ways of seeing the world and living in it. It means teaching the eye to perceive the narrative nuances present in any image, and how to control them. My work practice is quite often minimalistic, I look for the minimum required to move an idea forward, so collage is also a way of editing.”
