My artwork is informed by the reading of mestizo and indigenous rituals in the Americas through a cuir/cochon/marica/playo/pato (queer) lens. My methodology rests on attending rituals, visiting site-specific locations and questioning the political context, sometimes utilizing transvestism/trans-vestismo/travestismo as a weapon for political action aiming for social change. t’s an ongoing exploratory research practice creating new imaginaries and aesthetics intersecting with art, activism, and life itself. Although my practice is built upon performance art, I often relay on videoperformance, installations, object based art, photoperformances, relational art and workshops.
Another aspect of my work is related to my own life as nonbinary queer artivist in Nicaragua and to the Operación Queer collective, which I’ve founded with Nicaraguan academics, artists and activists back in 2013 in order to create decolonial, transfeminist and intersectional reflections in Nicaragua and Central America.
