Artist’s statement 

Departing from a thorough research into the prerequesites of movement from a geological and ecological perspective, my work seeks to articulate environments where bodies, objects and things coincide into place. Between evanescence and permanence, I explore textures, volumes and vibrations through dancing, writing, drawing and stonecarving in order to create new imaginaries. Where push meets pull, movement as transformation - with its temporality and inner logics intact -expands into an energetically driven mass, opening up towards a poetic of coexistance, an other and elsewhere.
