Nous : tembloresApril 10, 2019 - June 26, 2019
As part of my writing residency at DARE-DARE, I consider the light panel as a border area between the public space and the private family space, as well as between the languages. Inspired by the neighbourhood in which the caravan is located and the experience of public dissemination of my texts, I plan to involve the language of my family, Spanish, in order to make visible our memorials (our traumas, our secrets, our exiles and our earthquakes), so as to invest the potentials of the physical, linguistic and relational boundaries.
