“Magdalena Campos-Pons works with themes of identity (female and racial), familial ties, and the friction of having a home in Cuba and a home in the United States. Compos-Pons works with 20 x 24 Polaroids that create brilliant in color. She works with costumes to address her thoughts on identity. She often places herself in her photographs with an altered identity. She weaves extravagant hair extensions, constructing nests or tentacle-like braids that twist and entangle the artist, while other objects are in her nest of hair.”
