My work explores the human body as a cultural construct, as a living embodiment of social pressures, expectations and anxieties. Restrictions, taboos, as well as empowerment discourses regarding the body, its practices and rituals in history and in our contemporary visual culture, represent the focus of my artistic practice.
I am employing a visual vocabulary that is coined from various sources, ranging from baroque motifs to the iconography of fashion and fetishism. My installations, sculptures and bidimensional works address concepts of repression and freedom, notions of beauty and codes of dressing, which shift the body views between collective fears and individual fantasies.
