Body is my specific language, it is my tool, but it’s also the area of investigation, around which my research and my poetics of body revolves. Everything that happens to us on a daily basis, even the smallest event, returns in our body: digested, metabolized, vomited, it goes in and comes out our body, leaving traces.
Our body is the map of our feelings, our emotions, it is the writing of our lives. Body on the scene is therefore the subject of my research.
