audio visual installation, 3:23 minutes, ceramics, rope, video, 2022

Jarrito, is an installation using ceramics and video about the history and the memory of a Purepecha jug that was found by my uncle while he was excavating in the late 1960’s in the mountains of Ziquítaro, Michoacán where my family is from. The artifact was unfortunately lost. Using my uncle's memory to remake the ceramics, my hope is through epigenetics I will regain the lost history of my Indigenous ancestors. The project is about displacement and self-discovery.
