We’ve been together since 2014.
We live and work between Brussels and A Coruña.

Our work has become interwoven with our relationship, starting from intimacy to explore representations of collectivity that question hegemonic ways of belonging and of narrating ourselves. By using speculative fiction as a world building tool, we create spaces in which domesticity, recreation, marginality and desire converge. In our performances, films and installations, we collaborate with our relatives, friends, lovers, viruses, ghosts and other companions.
