My practice as a visual artist is focused on creating bridges - physical or symbolic - between individuals and / or communities; that have different cultures and geographic spaces. My work has transversal axes as: marginality, exclusion and invisibility. These are related to deep issues such as: migration, racism and particularly the historical memory associated with the internal armed conflict in Peru (1980 - 2000), which I have been developing for two years, creating a Memory Space with a specific community.

Formally, my work is in macro or micro scale; and for specific sites. My practice can be individual as well as collective. I believe in co-creation processes, as an individual, I am part of the collective artist group FIBRA ( ) and as part of the community, we made a Memory Space with the people of Hualla in Ayacucho, Peru; and with nature, a project with Ostra mushrooms – bio materials.

Small gesture of commemoration site specific
The coast of Lesbos, Greece.

Small gesture of commemoration is an intervention in the coast of Lesbos, Greece. In 2016, the migration crisis from Syria intensified and a lot of Syrians died trying to cross the Aegean Sea.

This intervention was a personal gesture to honor those who have died and disappeared in this travel.

Stacking stones one above another is an act to say I remember you, not only in Jewish culture, but also in the Peruvian Andes. The motives are varied: Some are made to give thanks to sacred places, others are built at roadsides in order to ask for a good trip, but also to commemorate the dead.
