The artist is warrior.

Since 2007, the focus of my art work is on my own body like a territory for intensive experimentations, exploring the time, the instability and limits in performances, making urban interventions too – extending it self into video and photography. I’m looking for the remaining the daily practices, the vision of the eyes and the road written by the city witch is in a process called Body’s Strategies. About that, my body has been both subject and medium. Exploring my physical and mental limits, I have withstood pain, exhaustion and danger in the quest for my “inside”, the wastes of the body, spaces and time. I’m taking chances and ways. Taking chances of research about the dialogue with the publicin in silence. I use strategies that can pass through different spaces, cities, territories, islands and archipelagos showing the subjectivity that embodies the life and give to the body and mind the reality purer (or the most cruel). My strategies are like a small device that raises the sensibility of a small gesture, the intimate, using simple materials and daily resources creating occasional dates and stealth possibilities with a poetic adventure. Actually I’m thinking my performances that operate on the interface between art and new technologies, entering in a poetic universe of experimentation with electronic and/or digital media creating actions that turn on chance, paradox and dislocations of the space/time relationship.
