Within a religious framework ex-votos are home-made, populist attempts to access the divine for protection and health. I re-imagined the ex-votos of my childhood to use them as a manifestation of a collective and individual desire for liberation. In a historical time that asks us for visionary radical solutions to century-old dynamics of oppression, this project aims to invite us to take a moment to imagine what it will take to individually and collectively build the society we want and need, while acknowledging the creation of such a world will take all of our wildest, most extraordinary and courageous imagination.
