Aude defines her curatorial practice as an activist decolonial practice which includes research projects and platforms to transcribe, translate and embody ancestral knowledge to heal contemporary traumas of the memory and the body. She specifically engages with forms of knowledge production that expand the notion of writing and tackle the idea of tradition through "objects", myths, cosmogony, songs, symbols etc. in spaces where the visible and the invisible constitute legitimate connected entities.
