Activity and/or professional career

Since 2015 she lives and works in Barcelona. She has shown her artistic work in numerous art centers and galleries both locally and nationally and internationally. From 2020 to 2023 she has been an FI researcher and teacher at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Barcelona. She is co-founder and co-coordinator of FASE, a collective space dedicated to contemporary artistic practices located in l'Hospitalet de Llobregat, with which since 2018 she has developed numerous exhibition and mediation projects.


Her work focuses on investigating the way we relate to the spaces we inhabit, paying special attention to the construction and manufacturing processes through which we define our environment. Architecture, urban planning or landscape often appear as the main theme or starting point, understood as the result and container of a series of social, economic, cultural and material processes. Her projects are usually linked to specific places, and through different media—such as sculpture, installation, video or photography—they propose a series of essays or records of the composition and material history that constitutes them.
