Chile

Statement

The common denominator in her work is photography used in different ways. Her subject matters of interest are identity aspects of persons and urban exteriors, which she registers systematically to generate documentary series under different premises. In them, the orders are given by factors as similarity, reordering the images giving them poetical signification in the visual organization. In other works she researches about different technical possibilities of photography, manipulating it to create series in stop motion and photomontages, revealing subjects as identity and transformation. With these alterations she reveals aspects of strangeness in the image, with the ominous character this type of interventions allow. She has participated in several group shows in Santiago and in other countries such as Germany and Poland. She has participated in art residencies en Lima/ Peru, Berlin/ Germany, Gdansk /Poland.
