Gato Encerrado is a six channels of color High-Definition video on six LED displays and four channels of stereo sound. This work was exhibited in the Maxine Merlino Gallery, California State University Long Beach. From October 1st to 5th, 2017.
The multiple videos presents the faces of one person and her struggles and contradictions, where the pauses extend the identity of the character. In these performances, with a humorist approach I take on topics such as immigration, stereotypes, racism, identity, politics, and language. My video work utilizes juxtaposition to examine the spaces between cultures, to acknowledge power and inequity, and to create absurdist contemporary mashups of entertainment, politics, and history.
