Artist statement

I was born in Leiria, Portugal. My work spans several media: video, site-specific installation, sound and performance with a particular interest in interdisciplinary, collaboration and participatory projects through a process of dialogue, interaction, and exchange. My work is informed by Deep Listening® and Vipassana meditation. My practice as an artist also involves curating and organizing. In 2014 I co-organized, co-curated and participated in BreadMatters IV ARtos Cultural Foundation, Nicosia, Cyprus. BreadMatters is a research program composed of exhibition debate and workshops that questions and focuses on socio-cultural, sustainable, ecological, political, historical and geographical issues around bread and the importance of bread in the history of humankind. 
My most recent work focuses on the exile, displacement, temporality, change and transformation, including the investigation of spaces of transit and of transition invoked by memory and storytelling that reveal cross cultural semiotic aspects as well as historical legacies.
