"I believe we are the people of the body. A body that becomes a temple of pleasure and our truth system. I hold space to move from the inside to the outside within my processes, from the skin to the lungs, to understand the organic nature of ideas that question the human condition. How to surrender to what is? How to make oneself become available for research?

 I perform and create works that call for collaboration, and through a merge of various forms of art such as music, text and drawings, the body becomes a vessel of our innermost desires, fears, and ecstasies. To be our pure selves, that is why I am on this Earth as an artist."
