Salamanca, 1988.

Currently living and working in London.

My work focuses on the potential of the hidden and the unnoticed, to create alternative narratives and explore the act of looking, the act of being a viewer and how certain images make us ponder durably.

I record elements of my daily life and compile found imagery and footage that have previously been discarded or devaluated. This ritual has increasingly become the base of my creative process and a catalyst for my art practice. Once a distinctive layer of this on-going archive has formed, I edit, structure and link its contents, focusing on appropiationism techniques, relational aesthetics and the concept of remembrance.

It’s worth looking into Nomad Projects, a multimedia commissioning & art production company which I have been collaborating with during the last few years.
