In my artistic practice I examine themes such as sexuality, queer identity, race and class. Growing up in a mixed family, Italian-Moroccan, my background was shaped by multiculturalism and diversity. This produced moments of displacement and personal migrations: both physical in leaving the family home and mental in shuttling between two different cultures. I found myself in a continuous movement in order to escape the social pressure that encourages a conventional course and find my own way. The effects of this nomadism are absorbed by my body that I consider as a personalised cartography, a semiotic system, a field of socio-cultural codes.
In my work I explore photography through non-traditional parameters. I use analogue techniques such as glass print and blue print that allow me to have a direct contact with the photosensitive surface, something otherwise impossible using a camera.
Through this approach I expand the dialogue around body image, and explore the boundaries that define identity and personality. My research is directed towards the reclamation of the female body from the patriarchal system.
