Trained as a professional dancer in the first place, I have then moved torwards the photographic medium, which was still tightly related to the idea of performance and gesture. In my current research, I am using knowledge from my background to pose questions about embodiment of perception, kinestetic empathy and physical thinking. Using different formats, as performances, text and sound installations, I want to challenge norms through movement, establishing a deeper connection between bodies and spaces.
