Para Tí No Soy - Annielly Camargo & Keily Castro

This is a collaborative photo series and installation of a public art piece inspired by the Chicano group collective ASCO, the short film “The Land belongs to those who work it”, and by the poem “To Live in the Borderlands Means You” by Gloria Anzaldua. The public art piece was focusing on political and public action in order to call attention to minority oppression in the food industry and to put the consumption of the Latino image into conversation. The photo series uses a poem by our friend Jillian Oliveira, who was also the subject of our photoshoot, that is in conversation with Borderlands and the duality of Chicano identities.

Para Tí No Soy - Jillian Olivera

Yo era y soy

Similitudes y diferencias

Elles nos hacen

Para tí no soy

No estoy a la derecha

No estoy a la izquierda

Ni detrás de, ni debajo de

Pero, estoy lejos de tí

Me reclamo

Yo era, soy, y siempre seré

To Live in the Borderlands Means You - Gloria Anzaldua

“In the borderlands

you are the battleground

Where enemies are kin to each other

You are at home, a stranger

The border disputes have been settled

The volley of shots have shattered the truce

You are wounded, lost in action

Dead, fighting back;

To live in the Borderlands means

The mill with the razor white teeth wants to shred off

Your olive-red skin, crush out the kernel, your heart

Pound you pinch you roll you out

Smelling like white bread but dead” (Anzaldua 194)
