Still Cuba is a project born during an artist-in-residency of two months in Havana. The installation is composed by a handmade machine that loops two paintings on canvas where each are joined at their ends forming a circle.
The paintings were made au plein air through walks in the city. I took portraits of the people I met, the streets I walked and the places I lived in . Focusing on the perspective of the tourist cliché through Cuban stereotypes.
