Intro
The Nopal, Opuntia Ficus Indica, is of Mexican origin. This plant has similar symbolism in the Mexican, Israeli and Palestinian cultures. It symbolizes immigration, settlement, rootedness, and locality. I refer to this plant as an analogy to immigration.

Artist list

Dania Chelminsky
The plant constitutes a border between villages. It also crosses borders between different countries. Like immigrants, it adopts local characteristics while maintaining attributes of the original country, always carrying a conflict of identity.
