Artist Statement
Working primarily in performance and installation, I explore the materiality of Latinx and Latin American erasure on multiple scales and fronts, from the individual to the institutional. I relive and linger in these historic, cultural, and personal wounds while experimenting with embodied tactics for preserving histories often left out of official narratives and archives.
