How Blue? - Work in Progress.
The textile history in El Salvador is complex and embedded with the genocides and persecution of indigenous people. It is also tied to the 12 year civil war, and the ways that globalization and capitalism affect communities and traditional practices. By layering photographs made in El Salvador with fabric that remind me of my childhood dresses sewn by my grandmother, the photographs build new sites for longing and remembering. I am making connections between the disappearance of this skill to my displacement of home.
