I am a queer latinX artist/director. My work spans across photography, film and live art.
My practice is an embodied inquiry into deviancy. It considers the body as a channel, and art as a pathway for emancipation. At the heart of this is a desire to escape the violence of heteronormative society and a hope for another possible world.
On a methodological level, I refer to my practice as somatic deviant research. This means, creating a space whereby inquiries can be led by practice and without predefined outcomes, and where the possibility of failure is seen as a potential to experiment and critically reflect. Behind my idea of somatics is a centring of the body and the senses, as a means to move past the colonial and patriarchal systems, which privilege the eye and the mind.
My approach to artworks is as both, through storytelling and play. My style is informed by queer club culture, ritual and magick.
My work intends to confront the gentrification of the spirit, exploring deviant forms of knowledge production and distribution. It’s also a way for me to become more perceptive, more intensely aware of inward and outward reality, more open to the sensual world.
