Performance art is for me a way to have a more realistictouch to everyday life and actions that are outside the structures of conventional life. One line of research of my projects has been the violence as a generator of encounters and focus areas. I believe the practice of art has the ability to deconstruct situations hegemonic realities in different ways, I think that art in itself, aware and responsible, is a tool for social and cultural action on the current discourse.
