Both her art practice and research have developed via inquiring about the experiences of art reception, gathering information about the contact of art with its public. It enters fully into the analysis of art institutions as spaces of social and economic production, with a particular emphasis on the productive and cultural definition of the roles of the public, and on the surveillance systems used by art centres and museums for indoctrination.

Via her research Behaving Unconventionally in Gallery Settings, she documents and fosters human and non-human cases of alteration and strangeness in cultural practices by proposing an artistic and theoretical re-reading of unconventionality. She also experiments with implementing occasions for misrepresented behaviours that, within the (conceptual) architecture of display, are considered traditionally unacceptable.

She has lectured at the 9th Annual Conference of the Society of Artistic Research, the 104th Annual Conference by CAA in Washington DC, the EARN Symposium at GradCAM@DIT in Dublin, as much as in other seminars and workshops in Europe.

Her work has been at venues such as the Research Pavilion (Venice), Dia Art Foundation (Beacon), CAA (Washington), National Museum of Fine Arts in Taichung (Taiwan), Kiasma (Helsinki), Pori Art Museum (Pori), Kallio Kunsthalle Taidehalli (Helsinki), Villa Romana (Florence), Onomatopee (Eindhoven) and La BF15 (Lyon), MACBA – Contemporary Art Museum of Barcelona, Joan Miró Foundation (Barcelona), Antoni Tàpies Foundation (Barcelona).
