About me 

1978 Born in Argentina, 

lives and works in Rome.

 

Textile, ceramics and paper artist. 

Quotidian objects in the domestic context and ordinary life situations, give me a ground from where to explore the poetics of the everyday. They constitute the starting point from where I explore notions of dwelling.  The interest I have in the space we inhabit and in how we inhabit comes from my own life experiences, especially that of migrating and motherhood. 

 

I started working with old home linens, found, given or inherited, treating and whitening them to create a reclaimed surface to work on. Stains, tears and other signs of use populate them like forgotten steps across a landscape, conveying a sense of temporary presence. To all this traces i have added mine. 

 

 Over time, staining and mark making became a staple of my visual language. I work with water media, and create inks from the landscapes I come across. Burnt remains from a wild fire, botanical and domestic remainders or rusted urban objects found on the street, run across my work, transformed into pigments of unique colour and luminosity
