My practice explores the physical, spiritual and emotional body through sculpture, installation and participatory experiences. I aim to bring memories, feelings and emotions into a physical dimension by creating objects and environments for self discovery, pleasure and healing.
The act of thinking flourishes through making and the physical results of my work are multiple and varied. I visualise potentialities in materialities, shapes and textures and work on space along them, where quick actions coexist with meticulous and time consuming techniques. The experiential side of my work is based on intimate and intuitive-led workshops, residencies and retreats where I learn and research with others in a non hierarchical way, borrowing methods and ideas from different sources like free movement, energy medicine, journaling, slow walks and sensorial exercises among others, aiming to explore the liminal space between the awakening of the internal voice, the spiritual and the physical body.
Participatory work and socially engaged practice:
I have over five years experience in planning and delivering participatory workshops, projects and resources within art organisations, galleries, schools, psychiatric wards and other community groups, catering to a variety of backgrounds, ages, needs and abilities. Through my practice, I explore crafts as a healing practice, facilitating accessible participatory experiences as tools for grounding and reflection that aim to connect with ourselves and with others in a supportive, non judgemental safe space.
I am interested in mental health and wellbeing, in generating environments where people can reach a deeper level of understanding of their feelings and emotions, allowing time for play and exploration with a focus on the process of making and collective learning.
