Mixed Identity

As immigrants, on some occasions we can feel broken. The pieces of our identity that belong to the culture and heritage of our place of origin, may seem that they do not fit with those that come from the place that welcomes us. The artworks in Mixed Identity series, celebrate the mixed identity, which emerges as a result of encompassing all the pieces that compose our life.

The golden thread, which connects fragments in those pieces, makes reference to the Japanese technique Kintsugi, and it intends to give coherence to each part of the history of our life as immigrants, rather than keep the breakage.

We are all in transition. Everyone is something becoming another thing.
