My work is socially oriented, focused on highlighting flaws in the Peruvian society. Questioning and confrontation are the tools that enable me to build this process. Through different media, such as audio, installations, urban interventions, I attempt to create a dialogue with the spectator.

WALKING TO THE PRESENT
walking to the Present Intervention
Concentration Camps for forced labor "Buchenwald"
2015

This intervention was realized in the main Station of Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany. The artist develops a relationship between this concentration camp for forced labor and new forms of slavery. Nowadays, modern slavery is invisible and often anonymous, affecting approximately 35.8 million people as of 2014.
Using the testimony of Victor Dupond, French survivor, in the Trial of German Major War Criminals. He stated: “The internees were also used to a certain extent after death. The ashes resulting from the cremations were thrown into the excrement pit and served to fertilize the fields around Buchenwald”. For the artist, this forest is steeped in death. The corpses are now parts of these trees. She decided to use the leaves to draw a line showing the route that slavery took for moving and evolving through time and place.
