La Naturalizacion de Enma/Your American Skin, 2017.
Vermont College of Fine Arts. Mannequin, cage, foam, paint skins, rope, resin. 6 x 4 x 3 feet. An investigation of my own migration from Cuba using paint skins to adorn, camouflage, and protect from the onslaughts of life as an immigrant-alien in the US. How does one become "naturalized?" Is it a process of "essentialization," especially as a woman? "Eroticization?"
