Memories of Asian communities - Chinese and Korean immigrants living in Buenos Aires -
persist and have a strong impact on this body of ephemeral installation work.
Migration - understood as a movement of people – is also linked to topics such as exoticism,
a history of the globalisation of production and a new frailty of systems.

“En cada esquina del mundo...” tackles low-cost textile production, a common situation shared
in both China and Mexico - just to mention one example of many- as workers there
are considered cheap labour in the textile industry. It is a reference to the growing number
of textile companies moving from Mexico to China, where production is even cheaper.
