"Becoming me - a brainstorming puzzle of thoughts, traditions, beliefs, images and music"

Since I arrived to Chelsea I have been challenged to try to express myself in new ways.
I became very interested in this idea of “thinking process” and the way we organize the huge amount of things, information, objects, tasks, pressures, struggles and pleasures that compose our daily life. I’m amazed with the fastness and mobility of this process where everything is linked by words, concepts, senses, images, poetry, music, chance, etc…
So I decided to book a space and compose several elements – drawings, images, texts, beliefs, music, memories and details of this new experience – that rearranged could represent myself in this constant updating process of becoming me. I felt I needed to reconfigure myself, and I really wanted to do something that would be the product of my experience, of the new me in a different circumstance, in a new context. Thus, this project room, this created space, can be understood as a brainstorming space where I tried to establish some connections that inform my life and thus my practice.

I did a Tea Party on the 30th of March and invited people in, and although there’s always the same struggle against time, it gave me the chance to talk with them and share my experience and points of view. Very interesting conversations! It was very surprising and ludicrous!
