Vick Quezada
Seed Unseed, 2021
Performance video, 10:01
Located in the Southwestern United States is the city of El Paso, Texas (1659). Throughout the city and its surrounding area lays a mission route that connects three historic Catholic churches: Ysleta Del Sur Mission (1682), San Elizario Mission (1877), and the Socorro Mission (1682). On November 28-29, 2019 Quezada returned to their hometown of El Paso to walk the 9-mile pilgrimage. Adorned in corn leaves and chain link fence, and operating a manual corn seeder named Ozomatlli, they walked from mission to mission, a path which comes just shy of tracing the United States-Mexico border.

In this episode, we explore Peru. We traverse the haunted Metropolitan Museum of Art, cataloging its stolen artifacts from South America, then travel through time to witness my family’s memory, archive, and ghost stories from the infamous site of Marcahuasi, known for its UFO sightings. How can ghosts reveal the past and protect us in the present and future?

the world is a womb, Part 2: Reciprocity (work in progress, 2024)
Single channel video, 9:00
Between the Baychester and Eastchester-Dyre Ave train stops in the Northeast Bronx, community members retreat to the Siwanoy Forest to find belonging and abundance. Despite development and deforestation affecting the borough, this community maintains a reality-altering, reciprocal relationship to the natural world, allowing them to slow down and find quiet. Reciprocity is an experimental audiovisual archive honoring the Siwanoy Forest and those who have cared for it, featuring interviews with long-term Bronx residents and environmental stewards, Renee Patterson and Anieto Henville.
