I love being on the borders of definitions: I come from printmaking but I am attracted by ways of expression such as installation and participatory art. My research often investigates the concordance between means and message, looking for the possibility of each language. 

In the last years, I started developing projects that use printmaking as a language open to reality: starting from a eld research, collecting objects and stories, recording footprints and traces, crea- ting experimental images. 

To me, printing is a meaningful medium, which expresses popularity and accessibility. It can have a bigger diffusion, more than a painting for instance, but it remains warmer than digital images. 

I have often worked in contact with communities living in the places where I found inspiration and in which I tried to build relationships, proposing participatory works and showing the process. 

Activism has recently entered my works, as a key element which leads me to interact with people and environment in the places I cross. Journeys and explorations became essentials in my research in order to reach pure observation, working more and more with collected materials and with simple and rarefied images. 

In 2016 I created a printmaking studio inside our shared space. I give workshops and courses for kids and adults at Checkpoint Charly, in schools, markets, squares and wherever art and printmaking brings me.
