About my art:

“I am memorizing every event to my memory while my senses are wide open recording everyone’s conversations. Aware or not, all these records leave their mark on me. Things happening around me, things I’ve heard, listened, said, seen, thought, done, been unable to say, wanted to hear, wanted to say, wanted to see, wanted to do, wanted to be… This intensity, this excess can not be digested after a while and needs a way for expression.”

These works, based on myself, focus on the disguised and the invisible which are sometimes masked out and other times cumulated inside. By the effort to read the text as a plastic item and the instinct that develops as a counter reading progress, language and the writing break loose from its saying and directs itself as an instrument that has to be seen and not to be read. This allows the constitution of a paradoxical space between the vision and the speech much like overlapping layers and sound turning into noise.
