From ArtDaily

Campos-Pons states, “I am interested in rituals and traditions, how to place them into the contemporary setting. African tradition is my everyday life experience. I don’t have to search for my roots. . . I believe it’s possible to live in America and at the same time, in Cuba spiritually and mentally.” The artist’s work testifies to the fact that identity is contradictory, flexible and mobile. Her work shares a formal sensibility with African American artists Lorna Simpson and Carrie Mae Weems. Often confronting stereotypes about black women and incorporating photographs of the black female body, text and in serial format, Campos-Pons often investigates the meaning of black female identity in an Afro-Cuban context.
