Ofrendxs: Yo también sé curar (I, too, know how to heal)


The works that make up my thesis look to summon up buried familial narratives of alter-kinship, love, transnational migration and home-making. At times these unearthings reveal photographic or filmic objects, and at other times they lead to physical gestures of undoing or unmaking. Not only am I interested in recovering what has been obscured, but how burial alters an object, so that what is dug up is not the same as that which was put in the ground.
