Received the FUNARTE National Award for Contemporary Art, 2015. Presented solo exhibition at Zipper, SP (2017) and Galeria Referência, Brasília (2018). The artist provokes new concepts of sculpture from materials such as glass, earth, concrete, including digital technologies and, sometimes, the interaction with living bodies. It elaborates phenomena of autonomous objects in the face of disintegrating contexts that confabulate different temporalities intended in a given space and that seek, with each work, to detach themselves from mimesis and propose a new “becoming”.

“I work with installations and sculptures made with materials such as earth, concrete, ceramics, glass, metals, plants and digital technology. My process starts from the construction of geometric objects arranged in space in structures of tension and balance. Chemical or biological elements that interfere or may interact with these structures are added, in order to cause interactions and modifications, whether in weight, physical state, volume. I propose sculptures that have a life of their own and change slowly and continuously, transforming themselves into other, unpredictable forms. I am interested in dissolving the material and symbolic boundaries of things; provoke the observer to experience time as a continuous flow, inseparable from the past, present and future and bring me closer to what I call Bioesculture. “
