I am a video artist working with documentary, installation and video art.

In my work, the traditional codes of documentary appear both expanded and undermined, employing them as vehicles for a critique of the mechanisms of exclusion and marginalization, while addressing systems of delimitation or distinction associated to assertions of power and identity. My work intersects community-based research with site-specific practices, constructing situations of dialogue, debate and commemoration in order to reflect about the nature of political art.

Currently, a Faculty of Fine Arts Fellow in the Humanities Doctoral Program in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture at Concordia University. I am the founder of POLLO, a moving image house based in Montreal, Canada.
