Statement

    I find a specific interest in cities, public space, urban anthropology, rural-urban relations and contemporary migrations. Works are realized in different media and are very often site- and city-specific participative actions, installations, temporary interventions or lived experien-ces, whereat I recompose given context, in order to reveal hidden narratives, or to empower social, environmental or personal potentials.
