Abstract

Ashes at Noon aims to pay tribute to the culture that raised me. I want to explore where I’m from, the narratives that made me who I am, and honor the environment of the Andes and all the ghosts that reside in it. My collection is anticolonial; it explores the pre-Columbian traditions we still abide to and the curuchupa—extremely Catholic, judgmental, prejudicial—and racist mindsets we’re taught to follow.
