The drawing takes the most important part of my practice, since almost 10 years. In 2006, I have been working with thread in the space to materialize the line, which I consider the basis of drawing. I’ve produced a series of drawings on paper using embroidery and site-specific installations using the walls, floor and ceiling. In 2008, I‘ve started to combine thread with different domestic objects like meat grinder and furniture or gallery exhibition equipment, such as pedestals. Those combinations have created unusual encounters between them querying the definition linked to the function of the object, the material and the space. My work is characterized by a refined aesthetic. I am particularly interested in the ambiguity of perception as well as nuance and subtlety.
