This series of works using the relationship between geometry and space. Domestic and urban environments are apparently very different domains, separated by spatial boundaries that seem to draw a clear line of demarcation between them, the lines that separate the interior space from the exterior, the domestic space from the public space.
The practice developed in the last period refers to geometric interventions with textile strips on cotton table placemats, that are generally used by women, in the domestic routine, as support objects for food and care. This approach is a contemporary continuation of a traditional practice, such as the geometric stitches on tablecloths but also their transformation into spaces of domesticity and its extensions in gender inequality and the constructs of our society.
