Armig Santos

Armig Santos’ work immerses viewers into the landscape of Puerto Rico as well as overlooked but important episodes from its history. Because much of Puerto Rico’s past is poorly documented, the artist gathers source material from unorthodox internet repositories, such as: outdated blogs; amateur history pages; low-budget documentaries uploaded to YouTube; and photojournalist archives. Santos’ exploration of these obscured histories is an act of subversion against the narratives imposed on the island by both past empires and the contemporary political and education systems.
