MEMORY & MYTHS β€” Mito y Memorias

Multimedia installation: animation, laser cut, paper and wire sculptures
Pompano Beach Cultural Center, Florida

 

This solo exhibition is a collection of animated works that relate to folklore, myth, national idealism, and the loss of identity in hopes of gaining a new hybrid identity. β€œIn reflecting on my own experiences of memory, place, land, and home, these works also connect to our relationship with ecology and environmental futures. I use organic materials, sculptural elements, collage, and printmaking techniques to create animations that represent transformation and cycles of impermanence. My content has historic roots in anticolonial movements that are tied to international surrealism and magical realism, particularly from South America and the Caribbean.”-Alejandra Abad
