“My work has obsessively questioned otherness, contemporary migrations, uprootedness, belonging, hybridity, social issues and the effects of War. Often self-portraits, going from the Me series to the Tree (which represents me), it is always directly inspired by my hybrid life, my multiple imperfect identities and the social work I have been doing since the mid-90s with delinquent youngsters, street children, migrants and asylum seekers. I believe art can only be a strategy of resistance.”
