'Perhaps my only true country is my body' shifting installation . Glass pavilion Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam.

 

is the title of an installation as well as an ongoing research focused in the jungle as an entity and as a space of constant transformation. In this project I research different representations of ‘jungles’ and the human characters that coexist in it . With a focus on human identities as result of post colonial issues.  

Perhaps my only true country is my body is comprised of several projects.
