Statement

My reflection over the last few years has revolved around everyday life and domestic history. My inspiration comes from personal memories in the family context and from the common spaces we have dwelt. All kinds of objects pile up, things that now I am using to create metaphors about my own history, based on appropriation and decontextualization. Memories, my memory, the trace and the passage of time as terms that form the basis of a large part of my work and my reflections. 

The idea of experiential and non-experiential memory has accompanied me in many of my recent works. Experiential memory consists of the remembrance of events from our past: "we remember it because we lived it." On the other hand, non-experiential memory refers to experiences not personally lived, to information we have acquired about ourselves but which has been passed on to us by others.
