She is a visual performance artists. Constructs works in dialogue with researches that develops on the body as a variable border, a surface of political permeability. As a hybrid artistic expression, the performance includes different languages and the works indicate as an experiment the possibility of being an artist through this manifestation. As action programs, the performance incites an investigation about how the body exists as a metaphor of culture, a place of protest, a space of disputes.

As a performer, she develops works in which her presence is involved. Although she can share the work through her photographic and video records, her primary objective is to perform actions, provoke occurrences, in which the artists and other people are engaged in co-presence, in the process of a common dynamics of time and space.
