My artistic practice is situative and follows an investigative and relational approach. It focuses on the significant micro-histories and socio-political contexts that can reveal how power relations emerge and persist in today’s system. Through trans- and non-disciplinary research and in close exchange with involved actors, I explore the rapidly changing fields of corporality, nature, labor, and education, exposing exploitative dynamics, repressed histories, and the construction of normative frameworks. The resulting artistic interventions and immersive installations employ a range of media encompassing film, photography, everyday objects, drawings, sculpture, and archive materials.
