A thalweg is a pathway tracing the lowest elevation within a river, a fluvial median that demarcates the boundary between political territories - a border. The thalweg is an in-between space, an intersection of convergence, divergence, amalgamation and separation.

About

During the early 1930s, the United States enforced Mexican Repatriation, a mass deportation of almost 2 million people of Mexican descent. Sixty percent of the deported were American citizens. During World War II, many of those who were repatriated were encouraged to re-enter under the status of aliens to work as migrant farm laborers.

Thalweg forms an alignment of free-hanging paintings, photos, sound and sand.

The works in Thalweg are repositories of memory, vibrational maps and reminders of invisible states. They are sensorial assemblages that recall awareness to mixture (mestizaje) within geometric hands, moon tide shapes, and sand textures. Constructed for vibrational absorption, the works envision a bridge between worlds that balances divided parts into new wholeness.
