Ben Loves Me 2021
The artist's solo exhibition is an installation made with photographs of several flowers kept over the years. These flowers went through a drying process and were then photographed. The image of each flower measures between 80cm and 110cm in height by its proportion. The project deals with affective memories of the artist, whose central theme of her work is what she calls the taxonomy of affections. These affections dialogue with nature and its transformation over time.

Erase. . .
All peoples frightened by a virus who are obliged to live by privation, and while fighting for their salvation find in their own home the security of life, dreaming of the achievable freedom.
In both versions the Angel of Death passes by, that for different reasons takes lives, but also protects them. Punish and save.
A new story.
I think of the Angel of Life.
