She is interested in the role of images to produce and transmit knowledge. She builds her work with materials that she transfers between spheres of different knowledge or disciplines. “I investigate, categorize, re-signify, execute minimal gestures by means of which an image that circulates in a certain field of knowledge moves and produces other multiple ways of seeing and thinking in visual contemporary culture. What I try to catch is a “spark” that is not seen on the surface, what is hidden behind appearances and that usually slips into the shadows of the void, in the interstices of the multiple fictions of the world that the images contribute to relate.” She received the Prize AAMEC of Argentinian contemporary photography (Museo Caraffa, Córdoba, Argentina) for her series Land (2017). In 2014 received a mention award in Salón Nacional de Artes Visuales, in Buenos Aires.
