I portray myself in a recreated nature; I try to merge with the earth and the sky through a reflection, like in a mimesis that praises what it imitates. I invent myself in photographs as a figure crowned with birds, as a woman in constant mutation, as a being that creates life in an awakening or a blooming; that becomes fruits or seeds.
My creations are gestural or symbolic elements of a relationship with the environment: surrounded by nature, a space from which the metaphors that dress me emerge, or standing in front of large buildings that cover that land and that sky, adorned with my small constructions of fragile materials. I hold plastic branches or fabric flowers, which remind us of the real ones, those that are far away, the same ones that are worshipped in this ritual.
