Julio & Lupita

Julio & Lupita is a video work in which a middle-aged Latino man, Julio, dances with a life-size woman doll named Lupita. Lupita bends into the strangest and even most perverse positions, to a ghostly Latino rhythm playing in the background. The dance with the doll is based on the Latin American tradition where an abandoned husband makes a doll that resembles his wife and dances the last dance with it, after which the doll is burned.
