Vueles, 2007

Lithographs, screen print, and letterpress, printed on handmade paper made from clothing of the artist’s family members. Edition of 10.

This artist book is a crossroads of narratives. The first focuses on the migration of an endangered bird, the Red Knot, (Calidris canutus rufa) whose non-stop flight takes it between where I lived in the Delaware Bay Area and where my extended family lives in Argentina. The second story focuses on Argentina’s Dirty War and the genocide that was organized by the military regime at that time. At the crossroads of these two stories is where I stand.
