“My dreams preserved in crystal, and bloom inside of me, are protected by those who watch over my body and soul. Our wounds are the same, the blood as well. “Don’t be afraid” they tell me. And I keep embroidering our stories, dancing our regrets, sowing fertile land for those whom yet to come. “Allyra” is a photoperformance to reflect on the genealogy of the artist and her ancient inheritances, resignifying her pain by dancing in flow with the water, embroidering the photographs as an ascending manifest that denounce abuse marks, traumas, and dreams in common with the women of her life, passed from generation to generation.
