Miranda de Ebro, 1968. Artist and teacher. I’m interested in exploring the relationships between language, body and image through performances in different spaces. I've worked for several years on the idea of landscape, drawing on walking as a means of projection and intervention. I’m currently looking at education as a field of artistic experimentation.

In 2009 I ran a group project on the memory of the town of Salinas de Añana in the province of Álava titled Oroimena irudikatuz, and in 2013 (as part of the Azalerak programme in the creation space Azala) I jointly produced the Camino a Cuevalobos (Route to Cuevalobos) audioguide with Anne Laure Boyer, Cecilia Pérez-Pradal and Álvaro Nebreda.  I held my first solo exhibition, titled Microacciones periféricas (Peripheral Microactions), in the JosédelaFuente gallery (Santander, 2014), and I took part in the collective exhibition El Rumor de la montaña (The Rumour of the Mountain) (Malaga, 2015) and in the research project La colonización interior (Interior Colonisation) by Abelardo G. Fournier (Matadero Madrid, El Ranchito, 2015)
