The notebook represents the flow of consciousness between myself, my words and the photographs (mine or the ones I found). The journey has no limits, just as the internal dialogue flows without interruptions or without any direction. As a well-written, and even better acted out, theatre piece, this diary represents the internal moods of the traveller, who is very distracted and yet, tuned in.

In June 2011 one of her works named “Identi-kit” was exposed at the 54th International Art Exposition the “Biennale di Venezia”.
In her projects she prefers using the languages of photos and videos in order to analyze social problems such as the human inadequacy to accept and to adjust him/herself to the modern ordinary empty spaces, along with the loss of him/herself and human rights, problems often related to the experience of the journey. The journey conceived not only as crossing through a physical space but also as a mental act involving personal and collective memory, an occasion in which there’s the loss of senses and the awareness of time, which no longer belongs to the interiority of the individual, but becomes an essential condition of life. In the meantime she takes part in a great number of group (National Gallery di Cetinje/Montenegro, Piramida di Tirana/Albania, Museum of Contemporary Art di Rijeka/Croazia, 2015) and solo exhibitions (SI FEST Savignano Immagini, 2015, Italy) in galleries and institutions all around the Italy and abroad.
