OCUPANTE was inspired by my first visit made to the space Tabacalera in Madrid, located in the multicultural neighborhood of Lavapiés.

As economic globalization is being embraced and celebrated by many countries around the world, there are countries, frontiers, and borders espousing immigration instead of scheming methods to prevent immigrants from crossing those newly “open borders”.

I will take the viewer on a trip through different physical spaces, where dreams and reality interlude constantly, and they become the occupants of their own realities.
