Born in 80, she explores the multiplicity and the unknown through images. She creates visuals and worlds in which we can see the ghosts and the lost memories. Past become solid, shaped with poetry, analog images, experimental videos, contextual art and performances. 

For this Venize Biennale 2017, she explores the Red Carpet and its History as well as the 57th Biennale di Venezia and the limit its offer to the artist. Happening to be unauthorized, this performance walk on the edge of reality. It's an attempt to exit the museum leaving a message. It's a materiality she walk on, covering her images and words (+ 2 pictures from SCD and a poem from Rebecca Lyon) with Red.

As the oppression of the 57th Biennale di Venezia raised, she screamed to make it clear ; that we're walking on poetry every day, that this 57th Biennale di Venezia walk over the head of the artist, that we lost the sens of happening and all this is just another supermarket.

The Red Carpet ended up in a garbage. Anyway images and poetry are killed everyday. Let's make it happen in real.
