Artist Statement

For years, I could not sleep. I would get into bed, but I could not sleep. Even if the most intimate space, I felt something might happen outside. I would think, I don´t want the night to come. The moment you go to bed and close your eyes, you remember what happened that day.A solitary figure floats on a mattress in a body of water. I am asleep, or resting, white sheets in a great expanse of water. It is southern Mexico. I document my durational performances; attempt to sleep while afloat in deserted seas, rivers, and lakes. I often locate my performances in cenotes, the site of rituals that have been used for generations, because, I am searching for a way to sleep, to rest in relationship to my ancestors. I draw from the legacies of magical realism, but I use the technology of aerial drone imaging to see myself from above. I place myself, unclothed, outside, afloat, to reconnect my body to the environment that surrounds me. I am no longer from Mexico or from the United States; I am at home in myself. In a time of political turmoil and contested citizenship, my work speaks to the possibility of finding home.When I create these images, I am looking for sensations on my own surface while being exposed to the elements. The wind, the water, the sand, animals, I won’t look at them, I just feel. Cold, heat, pain, fear, warmth, pleasure merge through my skin. The more I get into this process my body and mind will take me to a meditative state. At this place there are no images in my head, just a profound dialog with my body and peace in my soul. I am there.I travelled from New York to the Yucatán Peninsula searching for a way to sleep, to rest in relationship to my ancestors. I draw from the legacies of magical realism, but I use the technology of aerial drone imaging to see myself from above. I place myself, unclothed, outside, afloat, to reconnect my body to the environment that surrounds me. I am no longer from Mexico or from the United States; I am at home in myself. In a time of political turmoil and contested citizenship, my work speaks to the possibility of finding home.
