Oil Painting on Canvas

132 cm x 132 cm

2017

This painting is a metaphor of a mobile home, a piece of land packed in a bag and transport it with one self. The depiction of the body combined with the organic forms of the bag with grass inside and leaves, branches and trunks in the background intends to evoke a historio-graphical memory: one self’s identification with the land and the creation of a sense of belonging.
In order to materialize this image I took a photo of myself holding a fabric bag that I sewed and filled it with real grass. The bag appears covering my face and upper part of the body, evoking a hybrid presence that is experiencing a transformation into a plant or piece of trunk.
