The own singular, artistic and poetic production is the result of an analysis of life, that begins from the reality of the own body and the chaos that exists inside of it, and the relation of this body with the environment that surrounds it. In my case, it presents a type of animal movement, feline, horizontal, anxiolytic, in a subjective poetry of what has stopped working and the fight for survival. I work an aesthetics of chaos, urban decadence and the loss of true relationships that configure a universe not very complacent with the big cities.  It’s a refection of the urban and personal deterioration, submission/dominance, power and it’s manifestation inside the personal relations, the uprooting, solitude in the great architectonic spaces, precariousness as a symptom of social maladjustment, but also as a conscious auto-exclusion from the mainstream. Trough irony and a strange sense of humour,  I perform a ferocious critique to the slavery of humans emerged by the technological dependence.

In an intuitive way, I’m very interested in the horizontal movement of reptation that reptiles use, a crawling done trough the contraction of muscles that give the (wrong) impression of being slow. Is a secure movement for a floor full cracks, that respond to a psychic state and a coreopolitic declaration before a subjectivity that doesn’t accept the urban soil as own. It’s also symptomatic of a lack of bonding with earth/nature violated by the city, trough the movements that talk about the loss of unity with the maternal womb, with the origin, with original presence, with the research of legitimacy and the return of the body to the ground.
