I am an artist, researcher and social activist, working with experimental and documentary practices in video art, cinema and installation.
My practice is an exploration of the mechanisms of exclusion, representation and power, questioning the formation of shallow cultural and national identity, while addressing systems of delimitation or distinction associated to assertions of power and identity. In my work, the traditional codes of documentary practice appear both expanded and undermined, employing them as vehicles for a critique of our embodied social memory and collective experience.
I am interested in material culture, landscape and identity seen through the lenses of postcolonialism, critical theory and postmodern geography. My research stands next to the worlds of fiction and metaphor -they are all forms of living memory-, constructing situations of dialogue, debate and commemoration in order to encourage reflection about the very nature of political art.
