I like to work with materials that are connected to me in a way or another; it makes my work feel very intimate, giving the viewer an idea of what kind of person I am. Thread is the material most often seen in my work, I'll always be faithful to it. In the last few years my intention has been directed towards recycling, towards trying to transform ordinary, used clothing, into new products, enhanced with an esthetic value clearly superior to their original one.
Hijacking fashion into art is so now, while the object maintains its function, it loses its functionality, since Function no longer dictates Form. The objects I create could be worn, but that is not their main purpose, hence my main goal is to create “vestimentary sculptures”.
