I pull, detangle, twist, fluff, set and sew different textures and colors of hair, combing them into one piece as I pierce them with nails, penetrating each strand with the expectations of society. I hang them on walls, force them into corners, wear them and make them stand alone.

This series of work displays the different methods in which I use both artificial and real hair to address the structural and systemic racism that originate within a colonial society and make its way into the home and minds of Afro-Latinx. The work speaks to a range of emotions in experiencing auto-phobia (hatred of oneself), racism within the Latinx community, confusion of origin and the stereotypical stigmas that follow the choice of not conforming to eurocentric standards.
