Born in 1977 in Brazil
Lives an works in Rio de Janeiro

The temporally-based perception of space revealed in my installations comes from architecture. I look for a physical spatiality. On the other hand, my relationship with architecture was conflictive. I try to deconstruct all that I learned about architecture in my works. There are actual layers of meanings and different forms of perceiving a particular space. I would rather open the way for a new understanding of space, in which it would cease to exist as such. It thus becomes necessary to mobilize this space so as to break our usual way of perceiving it. Most of the materials I use on my sculpture are found in architecture practice. I try to take materials out of its context, these functions and properties are often being subverted.
