About this product
- DescriptionInvoking a Mexican slang term that translates roughly as white girl, Guera considers how the body's meaning as a racialized, gendered, and sexualized surface shifts as it crosses linguistic and national borders. Gaydos's disarmingly direct addresses slip between the spaces of story and reality, traversing the many meanings of appearance : t only the physical image and its attendant assumptions, but also the act of arriving or becoming visible. Moving between Los Angeles, Oaxaca, Mexico City, and Talcott, Virginia, Guera traces the way touristic desire, folklore, and stereotype transform the languages we speak and the bodies we inhabit.
