Mi producción parte originariamente de la conceptualización de la escritura y el dibujo entendidos como acciones primarias presentes en el desarrollo de lo que se denomina en el contexto occidental psique, conciencia o subjetividad. Planteo mi trabajo como una investigación de elementos en los márgenes de un discurso dominante, que a menudo pueden encontrarse en lo poético, lo emocional o lo anti-heroico. Sitúo en lo político la práctica artística poniéndola al servicio de la posibilidad de una psicomilitancia, en la que el posicionamiento puede darse a través de nociones como afecto, vulnerabilidad, trance o embodiment.
My production originates from the conceptualization of writing and drawing understood as primary actions involved in the development of what is called in the Western context psyche, consciousness or subjectivity. I present my work as an investigation of elements on the margins of a dominant discourse, which can often be found in the poetic, the emotional or the anti-heroic. I place artistic practice in the political milieu by putting it at the service of the possibility of a psychic-militancy, in which taking a stance can occur through notions such as affect, vulnerability, trance or embodiment.

He trabajado de forma paralela en el proyecto Cooperativa General Humana, sobre las posibilidades de diseccionar el teatro como género burgués, interrelacionando instalación, acción y performance con videoarte.
I have simultaneously worked in the Cooperativa General Humana project, on the possibilities of dissecting theater as a bourgeois genre, inter-relating installation, action and performance with video-art.
