Disappearance Suit (Series)
Disappearance Suits is an ongoing series that examines marginalized identities in contemporary American culture and beyond. As a first-generation Mexican American from an immigrant family, I am interested in understanding the relationship between the politicized body and rural, remote, or romantic landscapes. I create disappearance suits for a specific location/history/context then through a series of performative gestures, I contend with what’s there and what’s not there. In return, my body disappears and reappears.
