Many countries. Many performances. Lots of people.
With a background in studies of natural sciences and engineering, interest switched to the arts. Swedish land art installations became “Fruity Torture” performance at the Museo de los Bellas Artes in Caracas. A broken heart in Latin America became performances and presentations with play doh sculptured genders shown at more than 20 events in 3 continents. As an artist presenting performances and videos. As a curator organizing exhibitions, screenings and publications. Workshops and lectures. 4 continents. 7 years.

Swedish grandmothers. Mexican engineering students. Pregnant man life drawing sessions. Bamboo from Brisbane Botanical Garden. Strawberry footballs in Quito. Art smuggling in Bolivia. Embassy visits in Buenos Aires.

4 continents. 7 years. + 20 residencies.
