Bieké: 2007-Present
Installations related to my on-going work on Vieques and its continued struggle for peace and justice after 60 years of US Navy weapons practice and maneuvers.

Channeling my upbringing, particularly the spiritual practices I was raised with, my explorations with installations having always centered on altar-making.

Yemaya Asesu, 1999

Yemaya Asesu was my first installation dedicated to Yoruba sea goddess Yemaya, created in collaboration with my cousin Omar at Taller Puertorriqueño in Philadelphia. I experienced my first magic through art when the gallery flooded and created a sea, complete with waves on the sloping floor that crashed and receded into the sand at the foot of this installation.
