Artist Statement

My work has to do with the object as symbol. I am interested in the relationships established between things and the subject that sees, describes, analyzes, and names them. Representation as language, as metaphor.

The theme of memory and its construction is constant in the discourse of my work. Memory is at the center of the collections, interminable lists, the spirit of the Wunderkammer, and the Cabinets of curiosities. I consider my work to be open, always in continuous process.

I explore diverse techniques and materials as methods of expression, such as: artist books, installations, photographic displays, boxes, projections, images, and moving images.
