In my eyes, literature becomes interesting, not in the limited space of
the book, but in the expanded community of readers. Through my work, I engage in particular social contexts and through artistic and literary means to effect change. I work in “contextual and relational literature” whereby literature becomes relational by weaving threads among individuals, communities, and their environments. This weft (unresolved, infinite) of lines is carried out through collective literary investigations. Here the work is not only the collection of testimonies and documents that come to form a piece of literature (poetry, fiction,
installation or performance etc.) but one where the very process of the investigation becomes an artistic experience that gathers and links, existing communities between themselves and creates new ones. I carry out my investigatory work with other artists and research in a poétique de la relation that centers and anchors my practice.
With the artist Alexia Antuofermo, we co-founded the artists' collective Tramages.
