Para la próxima is an ongoing sculpture comprised of various items destined for the artist's relatives in Cuba. The items included, as well as the backpack or suitcase that holds them, will either be taken by the artist on his next trip to the island or sent with a friend who is traveling there, whichever comes first. The varied and domestic quality of the objects not only implies the difficulty of finding certain items in Cuba, but the work's ongoing nature points to an all too common sensation for those visiting loved ones on the island: that of never having brought enough.
