Her works are realized through artistic actions and visual designs that have at their core an in situ, site specific, performative, and collective character. Through the polyphony of her narratives, she seeks the recall of collective memory, activation of the local communities, and other social groups that live and work where she performs her works. She uses methods akin to public history and creates original archives comprising the products of her research and interviews.
