Collages

For me collages are a way to think about possibilities and to re-signify some realities or idealizations to materialize a new image. And this image composed of other elements becomes the whole. Just like us, but flesh and blood, we are collages of countless elements that make up our subjectivity and individuality. I like mixed, hand and analog collage and I think the different materials, cause an interesting tactile sensation. I like typography and I like to embroider on paper. I keep various papers, and collect the tangled threads of the fabrics I work on.


Every time I buy fabric, I cut out a piece of the pattern and put it in a book. Every time I have to cut the fabric, depending on which one, I prefer to tear. I tear the fabrics, and I always have lots of threads, which I like to embroider on the collages.  The mixtures of thread colors and the way they entangle fascinate me a lot. I started to keep in books all the remnants of thread that I produced.
