Her works depart from the exploration of the conditioning factors of a place or situation - architectural elements and infrastructures, organisational structures, regulations and protocols, historical or recent events - in order to propose minimal displacement operations that can bring into play the constrictions and complexities of the framework in which they are inscribed. These proposals often activate unknown dimensions and require delicate processes of dialogue and negotiation. Her practice, contextual and propositional, explores the relational character of space and the implication of the body as an active element within the established configurations.
