I am passionate about the role of art as a bridge to allow the collective construction and visibilisation of some ways of life, which violence has tried to hide from the social narrative. Through artistic practice, I have linked work in community with my creative process, in this I seek make visible the knowledge of people who have been victims of forced displacement.

When coming from the field in its cosmogony the earth is a fertile soil that represents medicine, food sufficiency, balance, communion with the other (barter, 'minga' or 'combite'); It is paradoxical that those who have experienced death so closely, continue to sow. What becomes an act of resistance in the current context, like a furrow that is made in the earth so that its seed grows.
