tierra de nadie

Museo Del Barro, Asuncion, Paraguay

Room-sized. Site-Specific Installation. Mixed-media: 16 meters of bridal satin fabric, photosilkscreened photographs of the body onto plates, a long and narrow altar table, and two panels covered with human hair. The clash between cultures is represented by the central panels, which contain hair of different types and colors. Hair, which comes from the body evokes both fascination and repulsion and alludes to the animal, the sexual, and the Other.
