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?"
