Hello fellow human! 👾

My name is Claudia and I'm a curator and writer based in London.
People who know me often describe me as a troublemaker. Sometimes I do stir trouble - because of my Sagittarius ass. But when I do this, I'm equipped with a lot of preliminary research on me. Other times is accidental. Like that one time when I touched a work by Anish Kapoor and posted a picture of it on Instagram LOL

Anyway, accidental or not, if there's something I've learnt 'til this point is that we need troublemakers, especially in the art world. I signed up to Patreon because I wish to remain independent and it would be super cool to have my peers' support, starting from something as symbolic as 1£ per month ✨ which doesn't really pay for my food, but it means that my work is valued, and so keeps me going ☺️

My thinking draws upon personal experiences in my loving relationships to unpack issues related to virtual intimacy, distance, violence and world-making. I travel through digital waves connecting London, Prato and Taipei. The writing I put out there, in the web, responds to the (mis)understandings produced within these movements. I am nuts for ~ Science-fiction. I write ~ Reviews and ~ Opinion pieces. And recently, I have started making videos where I read books out loud - because reading is what? FUNDAMENTAL, Mama Ru would say.

With just 100 Patrons, I would be able to produce content that I wish I was already be making, including recorded or broadcasted Studio Visits (where I could PAY AN ARTIST to share their process) or interviewing creators/researchers who are doing work that should be known about. You becoming a Patron today is me getting one step closer to make such amazing projects for you and a lot more people.

Thank you!

With love,
