Denise Duhamel

Marlon Portales

INDEPENDENCE DAY (HOSPICE) is a poem by Guggenheim fellow Denise Duhamel, published exclusively by theVERSEverse, and visually interpreted by Cuban artist Marlon Portales.

Portales graduated from Havana’s Higher Institute of Art (ISA) with honors. His practice is multidisciplinary and includes diverse media, such as painting, installation, video art, photography, performance and NFTs. His views in the fields of politics and ideals yield works that carry evident sociological and philosophical quests. Ultimately, through his work, he aims at engaging the observer in a dialogue about different point of views as well as universally shared reflections.

Available to collect via theVERSEverse SuperRare Genesis Collection.

She says, Pray for me.
She sounds like the country.
