Chile 1980

My artwork is composed by the combination of different kinds of spaces, stories and events, by placing them in a subjective order, in this way I want to change their usual meaning, and give importance to things that normally are insignificant.
Make art is for me like playing a game, following my own rules. In each project I explore places with the intention of symbolically appropriating them.
As methods and procedures I use walking, demarcation, collecting and classifying. Trough this system I get the material for my work and the result is always different, depending on the process.
