Buenos Aires, my current home, helps me construct and deconstruct a chain of memories that emerged from the emptiness that comes from moving out and living in other cities throughout my life. Along these recollections, I interweave my history and allow myself to dream about the past and future. (From the photographic series "Belongings").
