Del Otro Lado: A Narrative

@ VOL 24 ON DEC 01, 2017

Angelica Mercado’s work is the ultimate fight for identity. In "Del Otro Lado: A Narrative...," Mercado tackles the tough issues in an attempt to embrace the divide in which she exists. Therefore, her work demonstrates the constant state of confusion in which she stumbles, falls, stands, fights and ultimately lives in, with themes of loss, trauma, longing, healing, and overall finding a sense of belonging in this space she calls home. In a time of escalated tension toward immigrants and their families, “Del Otro Lado,” shines a light on the status quo. For those who are on this side, you will find yourself thinking, questioning, and overall attempting to understand what it means, to live in the in-between; in-between two cultures, two countries, two identities.”
