ARTIST STATEMENT: In my work, I discuss feminist and feminine issues through conceptual lens. I am often triggered by personal experiences, however during my process of developing a piece I avoid to leave traces of my personal life, presenting solely what is universal.
Materials and words execute a fundamental role in my pieces. Through the representation of something in an unusual material, I am able to add new layers of meanings. The words in the title of my pieces are also fundamental for the understanding of the ideas that I want to convey. They are often humorous and many times are written in my mother language; Portuguese. In my artistic practice, the title comes together with the idea and not as later added element.
My work is mainly a subversion of complex but ignored subjects, such as the female body, home, and line. My final goal is to lead the audience into rethinking these subjects
