The showcase proposes a space for visual exploration, which draws attention to the contradictions, belongings, negotiations and dialogues present in the geographic and emotional crossing of migrants. The suitcase--as an allegorical figure of displacement, transit, loss and the human ability to create and recreate itself-- is the point of departure of this project. It is an intimate space in which the migrant takes memory and wishes; its past, present and future.
