Mi Ultimo Suspiro, 2017

Mi Ultimo Suspiro is an installation comprised of casted iced water bottles that were left behind at different border entry points between the United States and Mexico (California to Tijuana, Arizona to Sonora, New Mexico to Chihuahua, and Texas to Chihuahua). Amezquita was interested in the negative space of the bottles, containing frozen water and articles of clothing found from the border She placed the frozen bottles on pounds of soil that she acquired from the border between Tijuana and San Diego; as the water melted it left behind the clothes that occupied the negative spaces in the bottles.
