"We learn from a very young age

to protect ourselves from the others, from the unknown.

My body of work invites us to awaken the unconscious using the concept of duality and highlighting the limitations of our learned social patterns.

The inherent duality in our lives implies that there are two parts, such as one separate from the other, one rejected by the other, one that is good and the other bad, in short, the enemy and the friend. Since there are opposing entities where an enemy exists, a division is created, a disconnection and a necessity to construct a form of protection, albeit false, in order to defend our vulnerability.

By enclosing ourselves with walls and all forms of separation we create superficial prisons of security.”
