Artist Statement

I develop strategies of montage in which narration, choreographic practices of reading and image-poem are used as artistic affective strategies to dig into the political dimension of the capacity to contact/touch.

I'm currently a doctoral research in artistic practice at Valand Academy with the title Becoming self with others through a listening contact. It rehearses strategies to inquire and image how to speak the personal or speak in a personal tone, and insist on a politics of affect(ation/ion) as a critical line to expand claims of art as political. And within that, explore how art situates itself as a shifting tool from power over life, to power to life. But, rather that simply agreeing with the diagnostic of exhaustion and pathological depression, expand micro-politics of subjectivation, of vulnerability, of care, caress and resistance that are unafraid of negativity, sadness and withdrawal.
