In my body of work is hidden the disagreement with the established social hierarchies and the necessity to break the social limitations which simplify us. A change in our social background is needed due to the inability of our society to accept the immense complexity and variety of identities which forms it.
Collage allows me to break the preexisting hierarchies and to explore new realities. My creative process break the roles stablished and try to create a role-less society which be more free and inclusive.
