ABOUT ME





I finished in August 2018 an MFA Fine Arts at Goldsmiths University. I have also studied a MFA in the School of Fine Arts in Madrid in 2013 and I have a degree in Architecture from the School of Architecture in Madrid.

I have exhibited my work in venues like La Casa Encendida, Matadero and Tabacalera (Madrid), Würth Museum (La Rioja), P60 (Amstelveen), Kunsthaus Bethanien (Berlin), La Panacée (Montpellier) or Bólit (Girone) among others.

I published my first essay, Digital Time. Narcissus narcotised, in 2014.

ABOUT MY WORK




I have always been atracted by the secrets that we hide, all those thoughts and behaviours that trouble us and that we keep in our strictly private space. I find fascinating the connection between those intimate spaces and the unclear limits of what is acceptable or rejectable in our societies.  

My latest work explores different symptoms of abjection, both as an individual and as a social phenomenon, and its role as regulatory process on our societies. Using cheap materials that build up and grow organically, my sculptures reflect on our complex and intimate relationships with the dark beasts that surround our daily lives, from the more intimate encounters with ourselves and our flesh to the more structural violence that regulates our lives.
