Mozman Solano Still

Please join us for this free event which will begin with a screening of All These Things I Carry With Me followed by an in-person artist talk where Rachelle Mozman Solano will speak about her work and answer questions from visitors. This event is a collaboration between SBMA and the Department of Art, Art History & Design at the University of Notre Dame.

All These Things I Carry With Me, is an experimental narrative based on transcribed interviews Rachelle Mozman Solano conducted with her mother in the summer of 2018 during the parent child separation crisis. The film focuses on her mother’s experience immigrating from Panamá to the United States in the mid 1960s, the current American political climate, and the immigrant experience. Within the work, her mother (performed by Carolina Solano) expresses isolation, fear and her feeling of loss and struggle through verbatim conversations that reveal personal history, microaggressions and day to day life experiences.

Rachelle Mozman Solano grew up in New York City and works between New York and Panama. Starting often from her biography and family history Mozman explores how the intersection of history, class and race forms individual experience. Her work is concerned with the convergence of ideology, mythology, economics and the psyche, through photographs and films that explore narrative as inherent to humanity and shaped by perception. Mozman’s art is deeply informed by her clinical work in psychoanalysis. In 2020 Mozman released her monograph, Colonial Echo with Kris Graves Projects. In 2019 Mozman had a solo exhibiton, Metamorphosis of Failure at Smack Mellon and in 2018 she exhibited El espejo opaco de Gauguin, Arteconsult, Panamá. In 2019 Mozman was awarded a NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship. Mozman has been awarded a NYC Film and Media Grant, Jerome Foundation fellowship and she has held residencies at LMCC workspace, Smack Mellon, The Camera Club of New York, and Light Work. Her work has been published in the Light Work annual Contact SheetPresumed InnocenceExit magazine and others.
