I look at the human microcosm as a paradox of the macrocosm where everything is connected, “All is One”.
In my performance I trascend the threshold between life and art, such as “In/significant, I’m in silence” during which I was silent for over 336 hours, or “I’m free, take a piece of me” where inside a 120 sq.m black cube, in silent and fast, I gave away over five hundred of my personal and valuable belongings.
I’m drawn to the suspension. We are suspended between life and death, past and future, dream and reality, like electrons orbiting the atoms as stars and planets into the Universe.
I named this research “suspended identities” that remaind the concept of heterotopias as theorized by the pilosopher Michel Foucault.
My works also dealing with femminism, anthropocene, rituals and human behavior. Also I have been working on a variety mediums transcending a linear narrative.
Investigating this concepts I pushed my self searching remote African villages, where the women become isolated as witches, or I get into a prison filming buddhist monks to deal with human rights. I interviewed for almost 12 hours a psicotherapist that became a patient, I investigated a singular hospital where the toys are the patient and the unemployed are the doctors just to name few example.
As an artist I am the observer that become observed in a journey of counsciousness where I learn by unlearning.
