I studied Fine Arts at Accademia di Brera, Milan, Italy and at Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Munich, Germany.

The starting point of my work is sculpture. For my three-dimensional works I build a base of words, a performative frame, a soundscape, an immaterial plinth. Whether video, performances, text, sound, NFTs, I always find new forms of presentation for my sculptures.

Basically, I don't want my work to be in this world; I would like it to be another. Maybe you can put it this way: I want to punch a hole in reality with my works. My art is a process in which reality turns out to be more and more an illusion and my person as an art-creating art figure comes to the fore, fishing fragments of another, new reality out of my own consciousness.
