Works_ > Atlantic O

I was born and raised on one side of the Atlantic Ocean and lived for over a decade on the other side. After that eleven year absence I was getting ready to return to my homeland and could not help to think that the big body of water would forever separate me from my past life and simultaneously physically connect the two places.

All the works created for Atlantic O depart from this experience and the ideas and feelings that accompanied it: separation, connection, longing and hope.

Exhibition created for Second Bedroom Project Space, Chicago.

Nací y crecí a un lado del Océano Atlántico y viví durante más de una década en el otro lado. Después de que once años de ausencia me estaba preparando para volver a mi tierra natal y no pude evitar pensar que la gran masa de agua me separaría para siempre de mi vida pasada y a su vez conectaría físicamente los dos lugares.

Todas las obras creadas para el Atlántico O parten de esta experiencia y las ideas y sentimientos que la acompañaron: la separación, la conexión, la nostalgia y la esperanza.
