*1980

Buenos Aires

ARG / FR

I was born in Buenos Aires in 1980.

A few months later my parents moved to France and until I was 4, we lived in the forest of Fontainbleau.

On my early years, I was trained to be a ballet dancer. I studied the careers of Fine Arts (Prilidiano Pueyrredón), Philosophy and Graphic Design (UBA), without finishing any of them. For a decade or so, I worked as an independent graphic designer, travelled a bit, and took care of my mother. During that time, I felt art was not what I was supposed to do. I practiced yoga with commitment for about 15 years and became an instructor.

In 2011, I started doing ceramics, with no particular intention whatsoever. Then, I attended some artist workshops and crit programs and started showing regularly in group and solo shows. In the past recent years -though not exclusively- my practice has focused on sculpture, performance and video. My solo shows were Magenmund/Swisskiss (performance, Palazzina, 2019, Basel), Remote Control (Pasto galería, 2018), Surrounded (Miranda Bosch and Cecilia Caballero, 2017), Strange body (Sputnik, 2016), How to dissolve a stone (Mundo Dios, Mar del Plata, 2015) and (magic) Formula (Naranja Verde, 2014). I did the performances, Caryatid (2019, Kaskadenkondensator, Basel, Switzerland), Example of a five-legged walking stick (2018, Ruth Benzacar), Corrida (2017, CCK, curator Rodrigo Alonso), Affirmation (2016, Teatro Sarmiento, coordinator Vivi Tellas). I have won the Creation Scholarship of the National Fund for the Arts of Argentina, the Oxenford travel scholarship and the Jury mention of the Klemm Foundation price.

Currently, I attend the Master program of Arts at the Institut Kunst (Basel, Switzerland) and I live and work between Basel and Buenos Aires.

In Argentina, I am represented by Ruth Benzacar gallery.
