Not Here, Not There, Nowhere, 2022
CSM Arcwahy Campus
This piece is a continuation of the work Unstaying, the ephemeral installation exhibited at Trinity Buoy Wharf in 2022.
In this opportunity, only a section of the 'house' was built, placed in such a way, as if it was intersected with the white walls of the exhibition space, implying the notion of the space / situation in between, like the feeling when a person doesn’t feel completely at home where they are, either when they come back to their actual place of origin.
The short face of the structure holds a mirror which is camouflaged behind the banana leaves, only pieces are perceived, creating the illusion of a portal on the white wall, altering the perception of the space and bringing ambivalent ideas to the work.
The Long side shows an oil painting, which is part of a new body of work titled: About Waters. The painting works as a window to a sea scene, a cropped section of a body on top of a boat, a response to forced migration processes and the Venezuelan diaspora.
