Kai Margarida-Ramírez was born in Puerto Rico and raised in New Mexico. This double sense of home has given her a unique perspective on post-colonial, feminist and border identity. Specializing in paper cutting and embroidery, Kai’s artwork fuses her family mythology, pop-culture, and intricate handiwork. Her most recent paper cuts source from family stories and photographs taken by her great-great-grandmother, thereby establishing inter-generational collaborations with her ancestors. This process has allowed Kai to collapse time and explore her space as a woman between cultures, languages, and epochs. Kai is based in Brooklyn, NY and is an MFA Fine Arts candidate at Parsons The New School for Design.
