Suitcase, bricks and cement
85 x 54 x 35 cm

The artist used his own luggage after traveling from Havana to New York. The interior space of his suitcase, as an allegory of a window, was closed with the bricks of Manhattan. It is a piece that embodies, in a poetic manner, the situation of traveling and immigration. The baggage is always the object that contains our memories and more important things when we are traveling. The brick wall and its weight create a metaphor about the impossibility of returning and also about the barriers we carry in life.
