As a multidisciplinary creator I am interested in the minimal, sometimes invisible that has the power to transform perception and truth understood as the search for the well-being of all living beings. In between these utopias my works from the last 20 years as an immigrant have revolved around frontier identities, vulnerability, gender. This research with a longing for an intimate relationship has been materialized in the creation of ritual actions, objects and installations in which I like to see myself as a living tool for experimentation.
Since 2013 I have been working as a director of photography and consultant for the Spanish film-maker Ignacio G. Merlo, a collaboration which allows me to develop my own language of visual narration, also applied in graphic communication projects.
I have immersed myself in the study of expanded ecology through natural beekeeping in 2016, when I've joined the Apijanda Learning Community and the socio-cultural and educational project of the neighbourhood association Pedro Esquivel de Santa Lucía (Andalusia). Simultaneously together with Karmit Even-Zur and Jorge Gallardo, started the development of the Bee Time Artist Residency in which we explore the relationships in-between the honeybee, landscape and human being through the arts.
