Cia’s writing is minimalistic, conceptual, abstract and concrete. Undertaking a sort of linguistic archeology, the pieces reveals existing and fictional sonore or sensical rhizomes, forming them into sequences that she also performs or exhibits.
Her practice is based on reducing the form to the minimum necessary in order to visualize a thought or idea. “The ideal would probably be a constant reduction towards almost nothing.”
