Encarnar/Embody is a project that centers the concept of taking space in white-perceived or dominated spaces and invites us to reflect on the tensions & intersections between intimacy + public art, aging + female body, movement + magic. In several parks in Cambridge, where I reside, I will create highly documented micro-performances inside circles of local medicinal plants resembling a "batey." As an Afro-Caribbean female artist, what interactions will these performances create? With non-intentional audiences, performances will be captured by Puerto Rican photographers. I will document the creative and administrative process in a dedicated blog at www.yaraliceagarojas.com.
