MY ARTISTIC WORK IS DRIVEN BY THE SEARCH FOR:
undermining visual information. attentive listening. opening unknown spaces.
attention to what is beyond the frame and scene. collection of beauty, absurdity, poetry, effort.
urgency to create and share. trusting the unfolding artistic process.
creation of body and space. translating life experience into representative elements.
facing radical change. human capacity for adaptation. mutation of the human body.
in the realm of mystery. discovery driven by curiosity. knowledge reshaping values.
beyond explanation. transformation expressed in action. carrying a secret sense.
following hidden principles that function as a key.
positive disturbance. recovery. insisting in the complementation of what is lacking. wholeness.
human potential. shift of perception. use of the senses. surpassing what seems possible.
perceptive concepts bound to culture.
inner compass following aspects of space, time and environment.
based on awareness, experience and memory. freedom of choice.
somatic phenomena and their inherent forms. universal patterns and principles emerging in nature.
sounds in motion. understanding based on intelligence and intuition. new modes of connectivity and collaboration. authentic and direct expression. simplicity.
the body won’t lie. transcending our usual capacity to share. entering human essence.
incorporating and transforming space. entering fields of tension. confronting reality.
utopian ideal of the collective body. from individual initiation towards collectivity. coexisting through collaboration. encouraging self-organization. parts building a whole. dissolving boundaries. respecting identities.
displacement of the body. unknown realms of physicality. futuristic scenarios fed by scientific facts.
new forces onto the human body.
becoming a future body. filling the gap between reality and fiction. engaging in future tasks. exploiting abilities.
