Looking at the mirror I see a figure of a woman, the shape, the flesh. What is inside? To look is to take action; I fight. Through the self-destruction of what was constructed by the outside without consent, I master myself, and rebuild the image that I choose, within me. Repeatedly, daily; as an exercise of existence. Then, I embroider the proof that I was there to remember that I'm alive and that my body represents life and death, peace and war, pain and love. All the leftovers are proof (video, paintings, objects) to never forget what is happening inside me while I question myself: What does it take to be a woman?

The gender subject got bold after I lived enough to see that the struggle and the fear surrounding the female world isn't restricted to a geopolitical location, but instead is global.

In my research I investigate women’s forms of social expression on the present society with traumas, body cycles and gender restrictions. My interest is in revealing women’s daily basis experiences through installations, paintings, video and sculptures, emphasizing the female cycles of fertility. The power to accept and understand the cycles as a fundamental part of understanding what it means to be a woman is based on a non shamed position between our  bodies / ourselves / society.
