Andi Icaza Largaespada is a visual artist based in unceded Coast Salish territories, most of the time. She incorporates elements of social research, ethics and sustainability to her multidisciplinary work in the forms of photography, sculpture, and writing.  Andi’s practice observes modes of belonging and resistance, searching for possibilities within tensions. Her latest exhibition addressed socio-ecological parasitism, and it happened in Managua, Nicaragua, where she grew up and spends most of the rest of her time.
