b.1999. Peruvian/Spanish artist based between London and Madrid, working primarily around migration, language & embodied memory through a wide range of media that includes video, installation, print & self-publishing, social art, and performance.

I am interested in the alternative forms of memory that offer ways of escaping colonial epistemic traditions, looking out for the simple, unconscious everyday actions that become active forms of resistance for migrant communities. I understand language (and especially, orality) as a spatial and bodily practice, and use it in my work as a manifestation of the body archive.


Also part of the performance collective Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
