[...] of modes of existence as artistic production and is based on relationships and their reverberations, whether in personal projects or in partnerships with other artists.


The search unfolds by languages 

multiple , which are in the process of creation and construction of the works, 


be secretions such as blood; 


be actions: of the body as an act; 


objects; or photographs. 


Forming language a record of my experiences of displacement and immersion. 

The performance is the drive of the body revealed. And it appears as a vital movement along the way. I call what I do hybrid healing practices... Naked, like "the fur-covered & androgynous Shaman "

My mom braids my hair. My mom braids my hair. My mom braids my hair. I try to prepare. Life must go on. All displacement is the action. My sister died without becoming a mother, without knowing Rio de Janeiro. I always asked not to die for my mother's sake. I never thought she was going to bury a daughter. My sister's daughter was not born, I think that was why she was murdered by him. Art likes to talk about big things ... Great events in life, social and political, about what never ceases, about what may always be repeated ?. I like to talk about small things. What will one day inevitably end? About what changes almost nothing ... And at the same time, that's all. All that can be said about life is gesture, and it is small. This is a work about love. It is a work about mother, about care. And I dedicate it to my mother.

The lick-lick “WITHOUT FEAR” was a work developed in co-authorship with the same, also counting on the involvement of all the participants of the group, in all we were 12 women from different states of Brazil, mainly from Piauí, the Brazilian state with the highest rate of feminicide recorded in the period before our residence.

para ficar bela
vulvas / sangra

SANGRA SANGRE is a process that I developed between 2010 and 2014 (during my degree in Visual Arts at Unesp) from the observation and experiments that I carried out with  my menstrual blood; I made about 180 ceramic pieces which I called "vulvas". The pieces traveled with me in a later process, being presented to women during conversations provided by the meetings... A work of strength, of silence more than words...
