El Espacio Entre Nosotros

El Espacio Entre Nosotros translates to ‘The Space between us.’ This multimedia installation aims at exposing the space in-between consciousness, identities, borders, and interstellarspace. The work uses sculpture and video, and draws inspiration from the word Nepantla, Gonzalez asks participants to discover the space that lies in-between as a way of acknowledging multiple perspectives. “Nepantla,” the word comes from the indigenous Nahuatl speaking people, the Mexica, more commonly known as the Aztecs, and it means “in-between.” El Espacio Entre Nosotros is part of a larger narrative in Gonzalez’s work, a cosmology of sorts that explores her personal observations and perspectives on the contemporary rhetoric that surrounds immigration and borders.
