My work often consists of performances or installations that are the result of performances in which my body is entangled with other materials.
I am busy with the notions of physicality, territory, labor and language. I start by doing something concrete and simple, almost familiar, and by playing with it long enough, I manage to amplify the unknown in it.
Lately I have been drawn to explorations of specific territories where singular encounters occur and where I can perform simple interventions. Carefully crafted gestures that leave ample space for the other to participate in and/or reflect on them. Text, photography, video, objects and traces of any kind function in my work as a form of experimental documentary. I am interested in developing my work in the gray zone in between performance and installation, treating documents as primal materials.
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina where among other things I got a Diploma in Philosophy (Universidad de Buenos Aires) and co-founded the Contemporary Arts magazine CIA. In Berlin I started working professionally as a videoartist. I am currently based in The Hague, Netherlands, where I got a degree at the ArtScience Interfaculty of the Royal Academy of Art.
