Mexican artist CERRUCHA (Claudia Espinosa Ramos), who resides both in Mexico and Canada, began the Mapping Skin Deep series in late 2013 in response to her own experiences as an immigrant and the xenophobia she has faced. Those interviewed are people she has found through social connections and with the help of Casa Los Amigos in Mexico.
The project is self-funded and self-directed. Festival Art Souterrain paid for the photographs to be printed for their exhibition. The project was submitted by the artist during their open call for works.
