Nostalgia

Yoan Capote, 2004-2013

33 x 21 x 14 inch
The luggage he used to travel from Havana to New York. The interior of his suitcase, an allegory of a window, was closed with bricks of Manhattan. The piece embodies traveling and immigration. Baggage is always the object that contains our memories and most important things when we trave. The brick wall and its weight are a metaphor for the impossibility of returning and also about the barriers we carry in life. http://yoan-capote.com/en/artworks/sculpture-and-installations/nostalgia
