My work has always been a reflection on the gaze. If our way of seeing is made from the social and cultural, we can conclude that all gaze is political and that all artistic production is subject to this judgment. The gaze as power. From there, I can feel that the artwork is a possibility to question our way of seeing, to interrogate the history that has produced all these graduations of the gaze and therefore, our ways of reacting to the world.
