Artistic Proposal

Proposing the body as a field of interactions is one of the main concerns that she aims to investigate through her artistic practice. She seeks to play with the body, fragment it and isolate each part of it to understand its limitations and fragility, distorting its structure to transgress its physical and esthetic barriers to finally reconfigure it in order to search alternate possibilities. She intends to reinterpret the body parting from a reconstruction. Her artistic process becomes a game of discoveries, both physically and emotionally.
