soy chifa

Mis pies sumergidos en el mar trepan un árbol al mismo tiempo.

 Tengo recuerdos como nubes.

Recolecto los fragmentos para unirlos con imaginación. Convierto recuerdos para tejer historia.

Piezas familiares que son las memorias de Iris, mi Oma. Hija de Emilio Wong, quien al finales del siglo XIX, después de un largo viaje en barco desde  la China llegó al Perú.

Soy Chifa. El pasado se mueve conmigo y mi cuerpo andante es mi tierra y mi mar. Soy un tejido de limón, kion y sillao,  de aroma a chirimoya y jazmín. Soy mezcla imprecisa y no calificable. Soy  mis ancestrxs (chino-italiano-español-indígena). Si estoy aquí, es porque vengo en otras partes. Atravieso las zonas opacas para buscar eternamente los eslabones perdidos. Mientras camino por Lima me reconozco en muchos rostros, sabores y lugares.
