vita

the interdisciplinary artist engages with various fields including performance, video, photography and music. she explores themes related to the body, identity, culture, memory, communication and form. her works delve into topics such as body perception, the variability and constraining impact of culture, our collective memory perception, the subtle gap between the real and the unreal, and the interplay of forms in the world. drawing inspiration from her daily observations, philosophy, and psychology, the artist expresses these concepts through her creations.
