I'm Carolina, a interdisciplinary artist working with participatory actions, situations, installations, photo, graphics and drawings to (re) create situations that reconsider the social dynamics in modern societies and reflect on how we interact with others and our surroundings.
My practice roots somewhere in between performance & visual arts and social sciences.
I often decontextualise objects, habits and routines to question mainstream culture and look into our codes of conduct.
My field of work focus on the auto-regulation of behaviour within social context, the acceptance of fictions (written/unwritten laws) and its standardisation. Social media, common affective spaces and social values' systems are recurrent themes in my work. The absurd and the staging of ordinary life are key.
Next to my own art practice, I work out visual strategies and design identities for clients while commuting to my head on a daily basis.
