The title of this show, located in EQUAL SPACE, is “AMOR FATI”. Which loosely translates to “Love of Fate”. It is used to describe an attitude in which one sees everything that happens in one's life, including suffering and loss, as good or, at the very least, necessary. Oquendo is steering his work to align with his beliefs and practice of Stoicism and positive affirmations that help him make incremental progress in his life and his struggle with depression, suicidal thoughts, and his disability. AMOR FATI is the practice of loving everything that happens and seeing all circumstances as a chance to grow. Not just accepting it, nor simply tolerating it, but leaning into it. As a Latinx individual, there’s no other way to live.
