Lilia Berenice Hernandez Galusha 

Artist, Storyteller, Designer

I approach each work focused on an experience.

I believe our lived experiences teach our bodies how to navigate our surroundings and people around us. Thus, it is important to exchange our stories so we can better understand the stories our bodies never experienced. Through a multimedia studio practice I look for ways to tell narratives that deliver validation, understanding, or representation to myself and others. 

The stories I tell are ones about a 1.5 generation Latina growing up and living in the U.S. Stories of immigration, family, self discovery, and assimilation make up most of the themes in my studio practice. Experiences accumulate and our  bodies become databases of lived knowledge. So how do we reconnect to our body’s database with agency and intention; and what do we gain in reconnecting to those memories?

People’s stories give me a better sense of humanity and a better understanding of others and myself. They connect me to emotion and make me feel human.
