Inspired by their visit to Ataco, El Salvador, in 2017, Ruby Barrientos' work explores the common sentiment of the Salvadoran diaspora - “ni de aquí, ni de allá” or “not from here, not from there.” Through Barrientos' own interpretation of what reminds them of their homeland, they resist the erasure of their own Salvadoran culture and celebrate their cultural heritage.
