Born in Mexico City, live and work in Scandinavia 

My pieces are reminders of our relationship to unstable spaces, spaces that are at the constant mercy of imminent catastrophy. Sometimes they are forced upon you, sometimes they are shelters, sometimes they are homes – and sometimes they crumble to ruins. What they have in common is that they are formed in relation to us, and us to them.
