Statement

"My work revolves around the problems of the modern food industry, the new models of food production and the speculation with natural goods.

With my artistic proposal, I carry out a critical analysis of global food production and the contradictions of the market, and I manifest my position against macroeconomic agricultural policies and food biopiracy.

I delve into the consequences of industrial production, such as soil toxicity, the energy cost of intensive agriculture, dependence on the oil sector, impoverishment of farmers, dependence on patented seeds, fertilizers and pesticides, the management of water… among others.

My main interest is to reflect on these issues, be more aware of the situation and invite to reflection through my work”.
