Flâneuse [flanne-euhze], noun, from the French. Feminine form of flâneur [flanne-euhr], an idler, a dawdling observer, usually found in cities.
My artistic work takes an interdisciplinary approach, using performance, video and installation. Through them I cover subjects such as feminisms, personal relationships and everything susceptible to remaining on the periphery. I am interested in the political dimension of the personal, the vulnerable and the power of narrative, whatever its form; this is why I do not understand the practice of art without writing, cinema and poetry.
