My work is based on the identification of cultural conflicts that are revealed in the definition of social, political and economic identity at individual and collective levels. Using the absurd as a starting point, my site-specific interventions gather materials, people, actions, objects, information and geography to reconstruct "the landscape" generated by these conflicts, questioning the strategies of repression and domestication imposed by the different entities that hold power over these processes.
