Born in 1980 in Pucallpa, Perú
Lives and works in Martigny, Switzerland

My status as a ” foreigner” leads me to question concepts such as identity and territoriality, but my thought it feeds of common mainstream assumptions. Therefore I have developed my own identity as an immigrant focused on my genuine life-experiences. When I tempt to provoke my audience I point out the various aspects of personal failure, the pathetic nuances within, and using the ridicule and a corrosive humor to guide the audience into finding a reference within their personal memories that would link or connect them with my work. When I start working on a project, not always I get to know exactly where I am going to, or what I’m going to end up with. I follow my intuition my consciousness and the lead of the particular word or sound that will give me enough confidence to start the project with. I start to canvassing my work based on essays, visual records, photocopies, headlines, and comments that have been intentionally manipulated. When I start a project my initial idea can change during the development, I process, I shape and build my work looking for a result or final word, that can be also modified by the context where I am living.
