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 the current research, I am trying to merge my dance background with my Fine Arts education, posing questions about embodiment of perception, kinestetic empathy and physical thinking. Using different formats, as performances, workshops and installations, I am willing to establish a deeper connection with my own body as well as with the viewer’s one: a commun process to discover together new threads between movement, this body and the concept of performativity.
