My work develops at the intersection between art-making and critical writing and pursues interdisciplinary outputs bringing together artistic action and political reflection.
 
Site-specific projects, collages, prints and publications are complementary strategies to 
question established conceptions of membership, belonging and freedom,
 offer alternative visions of the European and Mediterranean landscapes,
and discuss the very conditions of artworks' production, circulation and presentation.
