"(...)My practice focuses on video work, photography and writing, designed for cinema or exhibition space, most often for the reconstruction of social histories. It explores the relationship between myth, topography and personal experience, where these three elements meet to form new concepts, considering the notion of resistance. More precisely, it is a consideration on our position in daily domestic and political environment."
