Judith Martinez Estrada: Revenant
5 December 2020 – January 17 2021
In her exhibition Revenant Judith Martinez Estrada presents a series of works, created using antique vernacular photography. Working from these originals Martinez Estrada alters the subjects of the photographs by the partial erasing or concealing of the figures. These reimagined identities and scenes articulate new narratives which explore notions of fragmented identity caused by displacement.
