23 Years Later recreates a walk I would take as a child with my grandfather in the early 1990s. On Saturday mornings, we would go on what at the time seemed like a lengthy trek from our home to La Campana, a local convenience store which served as a hub for an older generation of Cuban men to smoke cigars and talk politics. Today, both La Campana and my grandfather are long gone. My family has also moved from the house in Miami where he I raised. Taking cues from the work of Dara Friedman and Francis Alys, 23 Years Later considers the resilience of memory and how we confront the passage of time.
