My practice as a visual artist is focused on creating bridges - physical or symbolic - between individuals and / or communities; that have different cultures and geographic spaces. My work has transversal axes as: marginality, exclusion and invisibility. These are related to deep issues such as: migration, racism and particularly the historical memory associated with the internal armed conflict in Peru (1980 - 2000), which I have been developing for two years, creating a Memory Space with a specific community.
Formally, my work is in macro or micro scale; and for specific sites. My practice can be individual as well as collective. I believe in co-creation processes, as an individual, I am part of the collective artist group FIBRA ( www.fibracolectivo.com ) and as part of the community, we made a Memory Space with the people of Hualla in Ayacucho, Peru; and with nature, a project with Ostra mushrooms – bio materials.
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.

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.
