I was born in Palermo Italy, nowadays I live and work in Helsinki. I am interested in social dynamics, I think that the artist as individual has a responsibility toward society. And this responsibility regards communication, transparency, and being critical with oneself. Freedom in art creation is a fact. It is also a fact that as part of a living and growing community we need to be receptive with our neighbours. I mostly like to work with narrative structures. Art offers a non-violent opportunity to change History because it operates on collective imagination.


My work has been shown:    54th Venice Biennale, Kiasma Museum of contemporary art, Manege gallery State Museum Hermitage, Finnish Museum of Photography, Museum Soares dos Reis, EMMA Museum of Modern Art of Espoo, Russian State Museum of Ethnography, Transmediale, Loop Barcelona, National Centre for Contemporary Arts Moscow.
