I’m very excited about publishing my work in La Lavandera, with Elena Aitzkoa and Raúl Domínguez.

I still don’t know what the book is going to be like.

Lalavandera is a publishing platform inaugurated by the artists Elena Aitzkoa and Raúl Domínguez in 2013 with their own books.

(Bilbao 1974). She received a musical training as a pianist. Together with Isabel Bernal, she opened the feminist bookshop and cultural space “Neskaixe”, in Bilbao in 1998.

Later, she exhibited he works and took part in initiatives like T-festa, Club Le larraskito, Bosteko Exhibition, Ertibil, Mrb Improvisation seminars at Arteleku, Eskutik Hitzak seminars, the Azala project... with small installations, performance, videos, readings, photos. She has also collaborated in the works of Itziar Barrio and Elena Aitzkoa.

Something she explores in her work is a moment of commencement. Stopping in that place, propitiating spaces of abandonment.
