The exhibition Una Mujer Fantástica (A Fantastic Woman) presents three different voices: Cielo Oscuro, who is the subject of two portraits, the voice of the artist in the press text and actor Daniela Vega as she stars in “Una Mujér Fantástica”. All the three characters are latin trans women. The three figures represent also as much stages of artist Puppies‘ process of transition, acting as the ghosts of Past, Present and Future times from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
Oscuro is at the beginning of hormone replacement therapy while the press text expresses artist’s condition in the present, recalling the writings that she produces as part of the therapy required by doctors for her to be allowed to transition. Finally, the actor Daniela Vega, being further than Puppies in the process of transition and of constructing a confident life for herself, represents the potential future of the artist.
