Chicken wire, Barbed wire, Steel, Brazed rod, Objects found and given. 2020

Alambre Dulce or “sweet wire” is an installation that calls attention to immigrant detention centers by situating and highlighting objects of migration. Some objects belong to my mother who immigrated from the Dominican Republic and others are found. The caging of these belongings are in dialogue with varied forms of loss and violence. The LatinX/Hispanic experience consists of both trans-national and interpersonal alienation.
