Statement from the Artist: "These passport-sized blank notebooks, with an indelible yet anonymous fingerprint on each cover, refer to hundreds of Nicaraguan dissidents whose nationality was recently withdrawn and passports cancelled by the Nicaraguan government after they were expelled from the country. The work seeks to question issues around identity, citizenship and displacement, echoing the rupture experienced by those who forcibly leave their country, as well as the invisibility inflicted by not having official documents or a country to represent them. Located at the feet of Nicaraguan poet Rubén Dario, in this emblematic park for the Nicaraguan diaspora in Miami, the work seeks to highlight the psychological aspect of the exiled hinting at one of Dario's best known phrases, "If the homeland is small, one dreams it big," which points to the condition of the exiled and the longing the floods him/her/them without being able to return. Location: Rubén Dario Park, 9825 West Flagler Miami."
