Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Flores, Nahún A.

My MFA thesis exhibition, entitled Entre el entonces y el ahora (Between the then and the now), and held at SUR Gallery, Toronto, April 12–17, 2023, synthesizes stories of my life journey and processes of making art that emerge from these stories through an interdisciplinary art installation that features two main series of works: Locating a Distance and Borders of Thought. The first series, Locating a Distance consists of mixed media sculptures that explore childhood memories. The second, Borders of Thought, is comprised of two-dimensional components that are related to my migratory experiences. To contextualize these two series, I have included in the exhibition a number of short videos that describe the place I come from, the materials I work with, my processes of making, the syncretic beliefs I grew up with as a Mestizo (Lenca and Catholic), and parts of my migration journey.
