I am an artist, performer, thinker, maker, writer, looker-out-of-the-window-for-a-long-time-sort-of processor. I work in a variety of media, letting the content dictate the medium, but I find that I return to the body as an anchor.
With the body at the core of my inquiry, performance and live media have been predominant forms and conceptual frameworks that I dissect. In one hand, the body and time are material to create the work with. While on the other hand, the body can be looked at as a cultural indicator that exists within the contingent matrix of a particular society and community. The duality of the singular and plural subject, and the inherent contradiction in that position, is a site of rupture that I seek to interrogate. Plurality is something that comes into the work through the lived experience of my self as a Queer Latinx person. It is a language that my body learned and, in one way, the work is another translation of the experience of learning subjectivity–whatever that might mean.
Lately the main form that the work has taken has been performance monologue or lecture. This is in part because the development of the work has exceedingly become part text oriented, and that is one method to engage the live and written elements of my work simultaneously. In other cases the work has taken the form of drawing on traditional and non-traditional two-dimensional media, sculpture, fibers, digital media, and video. I want the work to have agency, and in this way I let the concept dictate the materials and execution.
