Nepantla, a Nahuatl word, translates to en medios: the space between, neither here nor there, neither one nor the other. It is both a process and a cultural space: a space of consciousness, a space of resistance to dominant cultural norms, and a space that holds power, beauty, and visual-cultural specificity.

This piece was created as a site-specific installation at the New Mexico Museum of Art. It was part of the Alcove Shows of 2012-13, small one-person exhibitions of artists working in New Mexico today.
