Linda Lucia Santana
"Santana's work responds to the fading memory of Mexican narrative ballads, called corridos. Inspired by Magical Realism, she accompanies corridos with fictitious portraits of their subjects, most of which were never photographed. In her work, 'Santana plays the role of artist, archivist and a corridista,' activating lost histories, living memories and the imaginative space in between."
