She exposes her works in some solo exhibition such as Tufo at the EB Gallery in Rome in 2008 and Necropoliat the MADRE Museum of Contemporary Art in Naples in 2011. In 2012 she attended the Lab/Laboratorio Irregolare with Antonio Biasiucci followed by the touring exhibition Epifanie and in 2015 she was selected for the art residency Bocs Art where she realized an artwork for the Cosenza Museum of Contemporary Art. Nowadays she lives and works between Naples and Rome.
RITORNI | RESURGENCE
“I enter in a house that is no longer inhabited and I find what is left behind; in the vacuum there are traces of the passage of time and these are the same and different in each dwelling. The moment at which the change occurs represents a pause in which one feels the nostalgia of the difference.”
