As a Venezuelan-Canadian, Camila Salcedo explores the theme of Latinx identity through the use of flags as source material for tapestry weaving. Focusing on the visual language of weaving, Salcedo communicates themes of immigration, layering, duality, spanglish, dissemination of borders, and hybridity of identities.
