Country of residence




My work revolves around the concept of a frame from a cinematic sequence, a moment frozen in time delving into themes of identity, tradition, and heritage in contemporary society. I aim to explore the impact of globalization and digitization on our perception of ourselves and the ongoing negotiation of personal and collective identities in a rapidly changing world.

Proposal for the UA residency:
Idea of exploring the in between moments: in between homes, In between relationships, in between jobs, in between identities. What I realized is that here there is a lot of this, and is something that our generations made of. Living in between means a portable home, a portable life, a life you can put in a box and move on to the next place.
