Matthew Flores & Ángel Lartigue

Forensic Excavation

Forensic Excavation will be a visual performance and chapbook accompaniment pertaining to the humanitarian crisis of migrant deaths in south Texas.

Matthew Flores will be collaborating with artist Ángel Lartigue to create a project with photo documentation, experimental writing, and a site specific performance with found objects that migrants have left behind in the country brush of south Texas. Since 2014 at least 1,750 migrant remains have been found along the border, more than half of these in Texas, and the majority of those are found in Brooks County.
