Tres Fases // Installations

Three mixed-media installation works based on multiples. Reflections on Health, Religion, and Finance; and their intersection with colonialism and the individual/collective as commodity.

 

Wall of Worry

Wall of Worry is a piece where 100 hand-made Guatemalan worry dolls are pinned to the wall. This is a reflection on global investment and finance and how these affect social conditions in developing countries.

El pan de cada día (“Our Daily Bread”)

El pan de cada día is a pedestal piece comprised of a glass apothecary jar, or chalice, holding capsules of psalms cut directly from a bilingual Bible (Spanish/English) and rolled into tiny scroll-like eternity symbols. The chalice sits atop a white pedestal, with a blood-red velvet robe. This is a reflection on prescription, addiction, health, and religion.

“PRx: Conquista III”

“PRx: Conquista III” delineates a map of Puerto Rico made out of genuine psycho-pharmaceuticals donated by a single individual, my mother. This is a reflection on the government’s decision to create tax incentives for pharmaceutical companies to move into the island and the implications of over-medication. It proposes that the third conquest of the island, my  mother-land, was by pharmaceutical companies.
