From the series: Claims of Belonging
Silkscreen monoprint
30 x 40cm

For Unspun, Iliana Ortega-Alcázar is presenting a textile installation and a series of silkscreen monoprints.

Her textile installation is a reflection on how diasporic communities are continuously engaged in the act of weaving a sense of home and belonging. Though carefully woven, the resulting fabric is forever precarious and can easily become unspun.

The monoprints presented in this show are inspired in imagery of weathered graffities that were once bold. They refer to the agency that exists behind claims of belonging in the context of migration, as well as the fragility and contingency of such claims.
