Lissette Bustamante - Yendo
Yendo is a short film that focuses on feelings of displacement common in first-generation children. “Yendo,” which translates to “going” in English, refers to the constant movement, both physical and emotional, that are experienced from transitioning between both cultures.
Lissette Bustamante is a Chicago-based, Mexican American, mixed media artist. Her work focuses on Latin American diaspora found in urban spaces. This theme is explored with the use of archived familial photographs/videos that prompt nostalgia, industrial objects that node to urbanism, and documentation of domestic spaces.
…by artists is an artist-led curatorial programme, where selected artists present online work and invite their peers to create a succession of content around the yearly theme for a period of two weeks. This strand of AOS aims to create networks between continents of digital artists as the current exhibiting artist is then asked to invite the next artist to participate in the project, keeping the chain going. The digital collage created through the ongoing series will become automatic, exploring various ideas as it develops, and aims to form a conversation between peer groups and acts as a stage for presenting new work by emerging artists.
