I’m interested in images and bodies. For Q21 residency I propose to open a certain type of status quo method of study and practice art. I propose a research in a non-written language, using movements as art theory: reversing concepts in order to create a condition to an art or, still, pointing a new type of art protocol and ethics that assumes multiple places for speech and act. In favor of a decolonization process, I aim to converge this living process in a political art assortment.
