This project aims to investigate a topic that is framed around the notion of migration, taking as a starting point a self-referential experience.

Migrating assiduously leaves sequels and consequences that directly impact on the way migrants perceive the environment, relate and generate bonds.
One of the strongest consequences is uprooting. 

Through this project I investigate concepts related to the identity and territory of young migrant women, showing, through the body and landscape, how the subjectivities are constituted from a sensitive understanding of what surrounds us.

The bodies are perceived as a kind of mapping where I aim to indicate and establish points of relationship between them and their surroundings, both the abandoned landscape and the one they currently inhabit. 
Antipodes tries to get close to a psichologic portrait of a collective that grows and ramificates each day, under the immediate effects of migrating, which is a crucial element to understand today’s society.




Looking in the mirror to give oneself a broken image, a story, one's own, which breaks and fragments, in its own way a failed act with some failure every time; some self-portrait that could be anyone's; at a time from within and from the outside, between two realities; two selves who, at the beginning of the narrative,- announcement of unveiled intimacy-, at the same time affirm and refuse, turn the familiar into exotic and the exotic into familiar. What ever should have been inside, outside. And we, the spectators, inhabiting that narrative space of the intermediation, a little bit ours.
