Dispossession

For this work, I adapted two pieces from Javier Zamora’s poetry book, Unaccompanied. The pieces explore how objects inform memories as well as how they feed the concept of home using Federico García Lorca’s framing of dispossession in “ Romance Sonámbulo”: “Pero yo ya no soy yo / ni mi casa es ya mi casa” (I am no longer me, nor is my home mine now).
