In Red, the artist’s work invents a transitional culture that correlates family history, art, fiction, and materialities.
After living through a traumatic and violent experience, the artist painted parts of her home and all of the doors red.

This gesture sought to emulate protection and warmth in her surroundings and extended to her own body.

To this initial gesture of protection and warmth was added the desire to identify people and objects that were important in her life — including her own parents —and painting them also red, serving as an existential bookmark.

This carries a certain insistence in time, between permanence and change, and establishes a ritual of self-knowledge, in which to affirm oneself as the same, one must be always someone else.
