My works revolves around the binomial art-nature; explore topics such as transhumanism and posthumanism.

The accelerated development of technology, genetic experimentation and the various scientific advances in the field of biotechnology make it urgent to reformulate the basic questions about our identity and reconstruct relationships with others and with nature. 

I often use organic products. Pieces are usually fragile forms and finally disintegrate. Its ephemeral nature - which evolves or disappears with time - places the accent on the common thread that connects my work: time, transformation, memory, identity, conscience and finally, death.

I create sculptures through the process of deconstruction and recontextualization of used material (hydrolyzed collagen). A transformation from animal waste to a sculpture is in a way a material recycling and also a metaphor of life cycle.
