My work has been shown in various venues in France, England, Colombia and in New York. In New York, I have shown my work at Galapagos (Williamsburg, Brooklyn), at the A+A Gallery in the Lower East Side (Manhattan), at the New York Independent Art Fair ‘Frere‘, the LFL gallery, the 16Beaver space, at Columbia University and the UN. - I have also participated in the activities of various artists collectives in New York. From 1999 to 2000, I was part of ‘air-Brooklyn‘, a Williamsburg artists association that no longer exists. This allowed me both to exhibit my work and to curate shows. - With the 16Beaver group, a collection of artists who explore esthetic and critical theories, I have created a performance for Access Zone at the Bronx Museum of the Arts.
The piece was a performance in which I was ‘working the crowd’ both like a spy and a street photographer, taking the photos of the events, the people around the events, and then having them in the info area. This project was an attempt to show ‘hidden’/ ‘unconscious’ collaboration. - I am writing my Ph.D. in Anthropology for Cambridge University (United-Kingdom) on the distinct spatial representations of the Maku Indians of Colombian Amazonia and of the coca growers who come from urban area and invade their territory. In the end, I believe that my artwork is done through the eyes of an anthropologist and I am now developing a project with Palestinian children called ‘Children of Conscience’ that fuses anthropology and art as well as humanitarian intervention.
- My commercial photographs are represented by SLPstock, a photo agency under contract with TimePix and I am currently collaborating with Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders, assisting in the photo documentation of their work, specifically in South America among indigenous populations and in Israel/Palestine.
