One Person at a Time Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful

On View from April 01, 2018 – June 30, 2018

Nicolás Dumit Estevéz Raful communes with a group of seniors, elders and older adults living in council district 18 in the Bronx in one-on-one life and art exchanges. They work together developing written biographic accounts of their lives. This experience is meant to open an introspective space giving participants, including Nicolás, the facilitator, the opportunity to reflect on their accomplishments, challenges, and milestones; including of course relocations, or those of family members, from their places of origin to the Bronx. The actual performance of recording the narratives is done in real time, and in an analog format. Nicolás transcribes the biographies that emerge by way of paper and pencil. Location: The HEART Adult Day Care Center.
