Charo Oquet is a Dominican-born and Miami-based artist. In 2004 she founded Edge Zones, a nonprofit, artist-run space, in Miami. Her work, Entering a Rara Garden is inspired by memories of her grandmother’s garden in Santo Domingo. Oquet explores themes of “uncertainty” within a context of mobility, exile and migration around the world. It emerges from her own life, from the constant challenge of uprooting and relocating, and is inspired by deliberations on the meanings of permeance and place.
