Transdisciplinary artist based in Porto (Portugal). Grounded on performance art, through my work I seek to communicate emotional narratives which are at the same time individual and collective, aiming to confront the passive and apathetic culture which increasingly contaminates our society. I aim to create artworks which contain multiple layers of legibility to reach out to different types of public. As such, storytelling, immersiveness, and movement have become my main tools to metabolize complex concepts into more accessible outputs.
I investigate multidisciplinary practice through an auto-ethnographic process, basing my research on a phenomenological, anthropological and ecofeminist interpretation of the relationship between body, space and matter. Phenomenological, as through performance and text-art, I research the affective experience of space. Anthropological, for I analyze the social and cultural dynamics between humans and the space they inhabit. Ecofeminist, because I explore the act of marking as a tool to reflect on the effect and responsibility we have on the environments around us, and as an act of self-empowerment over the structures which dictate and limit our agency over it.
In paralell to my artistic practice, I have been developing collective projects as a curator and cultural programmer with the aim to create alternative dynamics for the contemporary cultural landscape. With this in mind, I have focused on creating inclusive, free, horizontal, transdisciplinary, and common spaces and encounters. As an intependent researcher, I have explored the dynamics and methodologies of multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary collaboration.
