Below/Abajo: Carreta Nagua, Siglo 21
Carreta Nagua, Siglo 21 (2007) In the colonial park, Alameda Central located in the historical center of Mexico City, I offer free rickshaw rides. Once the passengers settle into the rickshaw, they watch an animation that tells a tale of immigration, aging and cultural and familial loss. It is an animation based on the current reality of my parents. Carreta Nagua, Siglo 21 is commissioned for the festival TRANSITIO_MX02.
