Guatemala

Her work oscillates between sculpture, food, performance and participatory works. The topics she addresses range from gender violence, violence in Guatemala and Latin America to tropicalisms, underdevelopments and her Jewish ancestry. The interaction with the public has been a constant in several of her projects. In some cases her work sought through sculpture as historical comfort in the face of contemplation of political violence. In other projects she has sculpted with chocolate and bread, taking as a mold pieces of architecture, to savor it.
