Artist Statement:

Artist Marcia X is a Puerto Rican and Peruvian-American artist working with installation, performance, painting and film. Their art practice and research is a development of what they call the existential-cultural crisis women of color experience in the Diaspora. They are beginning their new role as Board Member for eLaboratories, creating content on self-recovery.

Their doctoral research includes phenomenology, Black and Indigenous artistic production, Afro-Syncretic spiritual practices, and Afro-Indigenous femme subjectivity from the Hispano-Caribbean (mainly Puerto Rico).


In May 2018 they completed an immersive film and performance project about the Puerto Rican Diaspora and the reeling with the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. It was shot in Puerto Rico June of 2017, and was performed at the Norwich Arts Centre in April 2018. It was funded and supported by UNA Gallery, Norwich Arts Centre and Arts Council England.
