Querencia is a collaborative artwork made by artists Hernan Gomez Chavez and Yvette Serrano. It is meant to look like a mobile home, a reference to the homes the artists grew up. The title comes from the Spanish word Querencia, defined as the place where one was raised, a place where one feels bonds of affection and belonging– a sense of home.

“The place that nurtures you, where you belong, where you feel safe.”

The purpose of this project is to engage in dialogue about belonging and home and all that comes with it; displacement, food access, and transportation equity in Santa Fe, NM. We will be setting up in common gathering spaces off of Airport Rd and invite the surrounding communities to join us in conversation.
