Born in Turin, 1977. Lives and works in Amsterdam and Turin.

She is a video artist and a sculptress. An inconsolable grief, endless but vital tears seize a heavy woman wandering on a deserted, rocky, immensely beautiful beach. A little boy is following her around; he is surprised, yet at the same time attracted by the woman’s size, her pain, her vulnerability.
