This exhibition explores the fluidity of cultural isolation through a temporary lens.
Through performance, installation and images, these works speak on sympathetic viewpoints of
disconnect. The artists narrative is activated by extracting content from space, allowing
viewers to deeply examine stories such as diaspora separation, cultural identity and
personalized internal islands.
By placing the self in a non-binary form of separation, away from place, away from culture; we
drift from where we are, in search of better direction and meaning.
This activation performance speaks directly on returning PR back to PR. As an island that exists in so much political turmoil right now, and a place important to my story and heart, Puerto Rico is seeing a repetition in early colonial violence. This piece is a reparation. It is an act of returning sacredness to what was taken, is being taken and will be taken in the future.
