The inseparable connection between body and consciousness is a central theme in my work. Physical appearance isone of the universal languages capable of appealing to any human being, making it a powerful tool in my creativeexpression.


My projects are inspired by the changes and contradictions that exist within us, including physicality and sensuality, self-perception, taboo, and stigmatization. I strive to create works that allow viewers to feel a sense of presence and relate tothemselves, often utilizing

site-specific installations across various mediums, such as ceramic, VR, and 3D.


I work both solo and in collaboration, drawing from my classical education and years of experience in the contemporary art field. My work often draws from a diverse range of inspirations, including social, ecological, and scientific perspectives, as I strive to address pressing issues caused by anthropocentrism.
