The many iterations of this works has formed part of the I AMerican group show, curated by Sergio Gomez, that has traveled throughout the Midwest.
As with most children and teens that migrate, the decision to become an expatriate from the homeland is often done by the parents. Uprooted from it, this work tells a story of interrupted childhood dreams, unprecedented life events, coming-of-age and revival into womanhood in a my new home. It is a story of life, migration, love, hope and trust.
The work looks back and re-imagines memories of the city I once called home, interprets the soul searching experience as a young immigrant facing the awkwardness of re-adjustment and acceptance to the conditions of a new life, in a new setting.
