Que No Quede Huella (Let There Be No Trace), 2022

Project type



May 2 - May 28, 2022


HOME Gallery, New York


Jesus Benavente

Que No Quede Huella (2022) (Let There Be No Trace) by Jesus Benavente is a neon video sculpture presented at Home Gallery -291 Grand Street NYC- drawing on ideas of separation, migration, family, heartbreak, and love. Benavente’s practice deals with social, cultural, and political concerns related to Latino culture, humorously pointing at conditions rooted in inequality, racism, white supremacy, and the migration crisis.
The window installation is composed of a 55” TV monitor with neon letters in bright red that spell out “Que No Quede Huella,” the title and chorus of a famous Tex-Mex song written by Lupe Esparza with his band Bronco. The luminous video sculpture sheds light on the erasure of memory and familial ties, resilience, and love. It grieves what has been lost and reminds us of the intertwined feelings that exist within the endless fight for a home. The piece looks to the past and says, “I love you so much that I don't want to remember.”
