Raised in the values of agriculture and ecology I am guided by the logic of the countryside, which helps me in separating the superficial from the useful, cultivating patience and situating the north.

Thinking with my hands and making use of photography, performance and games, I intend to remedy the habits and practices that oppress us in public space. My practice gravitates around the construction of a scenario in which artistic production is articulated as one more incident in the constellation of images that surround us.

The way I understand artistic practice comes from my engagement in social practices, participatory working methods and public art. The accessibility of my work, the potential for change and the power of thinking together through participation makes my artistic practice a dynamic agent meandering between contemporary cities and rural communities.

After graduating in Fine Arts at the Polytechnic University of Valencia I developed my work in this city while studying the MA in Artistic Production until 2016, concluding with my solo exhibition Edits at Romà de la Calle Foundation. Afterwards, I built my own studio in Benlloc where I’ve been working for the next three years developing my work.

In 2019, I was awarded a grant to produce the project Las Bañistas within the framework of GlogauAIR in Berlin. Subsequently, I have been invited to do an art residency in PALMA Festival in Caen, while I continued participating in the Spanish art scene, such as PhotoEspaña, EACC and CCC.

Currently, I am living in The Hague where I recently graduated from the 2 years program MA Photography & Society at KABK while I’m developing two projects in the framework of Confluències, IVAM.
