Since 2018 she has been working on the creation of an ongoing project called ‘Book-Performance’, composed by a series of actions devised in response to specific autobiographical texts particularly influenced by personal experiences of racism and misogyny. Currently, she is part of the international collective ‘Speculative Landscapes’ a group of four women which, since 2020, has been working on systemic questions about what else institutions can be, when shaped not from stories violence, segmentation and extractions in the territories.
