Marisma

“Many migrants exist in a liminal or ‘Third Space’ between cultures and nationalities, physical locations and imagined or represented spaces” (Edward Soja). At these intersections, migrants construct a sense of place, home, and identity. My current work explores this space through photography, using performance and combining factual and fictional re-imagination of the experience. I explore this “Third Space” as a dynamic site of translation, transmission, and performance and a transitory space of abundance.
I use my brown body to explore the complex physical and mental processes that occur while inhabiting intermediate spaces formed by rigid group identities in constant struggle.
