2021-2022 series plant dyed sculptures

2020 installation


Making my work originates in free movement; I use my hands and the rest of my body to work with materials. It puts me in a state of mind unhindered by knowledge. The materials I use have contradictory characteristics, like transparent and opaque, solid and flowing, organic and synthetic. I touch the material, look at it, cut it in a shape, paint it, move it around and cook and sew it. These movements make me aware of the sensations of my body and my surroundings. It is about being moved and reacting to it. I consider it as looking at the world with my whole body. It enables me to navigate the resonances and dissonances that can be felt between different rhythms in the landscape.
