“From the beginning, my artistic work has been characterized by research associated with other professionals from different fields, explorations through which I have constructed poetic and political stories. In recent years I have worked on two research series, both taking autobiographical experiences as a starting point:
One is the series –Trazo Mutable – where the works are constructed through a nomadic laboratory that maps territories and collects stories of people marked by migration through interviews, where the micro-story and direct testimony are the starting point to develop each work.
The second is the series – DNA Project -, where I have worked on the so-called “genetic profile”, the pattern of short DNA fragments that, when ordered, give the identity of a living being, in an unrepeatable combination. This research tells us about the search for disappeared identities but also about flora species that are about to become extinct ”.
