Exploring Female Identity by Alejandra Glez

The work of Alejandra Glez (Havana, Cuba, 1996) spans Afro-Caribbean religions, collective memory, and the spirituality that emanates from the relationship between human beings and the sea. She seeks to explore the feminine identity and examines her own experience with traumas such as panic attacks and sexual assault to construct unique and poignant visual works.
