is a belgo-italian artist based in Brussels.
She travels the world looking for bridges,
building images and movement
from the reality she meets out there.
Burkina Faso and its street’s kids,
asylum and Amazonia in French Guyana,
clan’s rules in south Italy, gend/trification from Molenbeek-Saint-Jean to Istanbul,
gender and religion in Dakar,
her theorical background - from phenomenology to poetry via psychiatry - opend her photography practice.
Alliance of gesture and images,
her works puts her body in the field,
crossing borders of being and doing.
She’s questionning our contemporary world,
mapping a Being stuck in Human Condition,
surrounded by a thick and concrete reality.
In public spaces or museum, her installations and performances are creating brand new semantic directions ; symbol stack and oxymoron displaying
fog, layers, blury shadows, smog and ghosts,
inviting us to think again.
«Thinking accompanies life and is itself the de-materialized quintessence of being alive; and since life is a process; its quintessence can only lie in the actual thinking process and not in any solid results or specific thoughts.
A life without thinking is quite possible; it then fails to develop its own essence
—it is not merely meaningless; it is not fully alive.
Unthinking men are like sleepwalkers.»
Hannah Arendt, The Life of the Mind (1978)
