My research is based on the power of art to represent and act within the structures of the imagination and society. In an institutional context, at the direction of La Galerie, Contemporary Art Centre, Noisy-le-Sec, 2013-2018, I have sought to make the artistic program of the art centre a lever to influence the social, aesthetic and symbolic relationships between the people who animate it: artists, teams, publics, partners. In an intersectional feminist approach, I am attentive to the ways in which power relations operate within institutions, distribute roles and prioritize practices. To overcome these divisions, I seek to connect what is separate within and around the practices of art: the personnel and the professional, the work of art and its administration, the majority and the minority states.
With Myriam Lefkowitz and Catalina Insignares, I am conducting a research project, “la facultad”, around a practice that the choreographers develop with people in exile.
Currently associated with La Criée centre d’art contemporain with the series of exhibitions, events, research on the vernacular and its relationship to contemporary artistic creation entitled “Lili, la rozell et le marimba”, I am preparing an exhibition with Mathis Collins for September 2019.
