Joy is crucial, happiness is a warm gun
2017

Loop video showing images taken in La Havana during the Artista x Artista Residency in partnership with El Ranchito at Matadero Madrid, 1’20 min

During my residency in La Havana, the tropical hurricaine Irma passed on September 9th 2017 devastating Puerto Rico and the west part of Cuba. The following week of the disaster I started to take photos in different parts of the town. New to the local context and new to a hurricane, I started to walk the streets of la Havana to get to know her and document all the destruction left, I believe, as another mechanism of survival.
