The Mexican Dolly project is about how imagination in multicultural countries is a rich source of empowerment that give a sense of belonging to those who are away from home. I prompt people’s imagination for a starting point in storytelling.

People complete a story that begins: ‘Once upon a time there was a Mexican Doll who…’ Thus the artwork does not exist until people give her a life. I choose stories I would like to live out and I dress as a Mexican doll that the Indigenous people sell in the street.
