Artist Biography:
 Meta Local is the collaborative practice of Elizabeth Hamby & Hatuey Ramos Fermin. Their work investigates the dynamics of urban spaces; exploring the histories of buildings and neighborhoods, and tracing the flows of people, ideas and products. Combining documentary strategies with performance and fine art, they articulate concepts of origin, and the sense of place. Meta Local develops site-specific, participatory works that refer to the complexity of their community in the South Bronx and beyond by observing, analyzing, and dissecting social, cultural and economic structures, as well as the design and organization of buildings and spaces. By actively engaging a broad range of people and working collaboratively across disciplines, Meta Local challenges the existing hierarchies, inclusions, and exclusions that characterize “participation” in the larger democracy of New York City.
