Collaboration with Nicole Rodrigues. For a first generation immigrant, there is a sense of disconnect when trying to identify with any kind of country or home because the feelings of pride, belonging, or national identity are lost. Neither Here Nor There shows an ambiguous non-place that is unidentifiable. The artists share a common experience of being first-generation immigrants in America and created a book that illustrates a fantasy hybrid landscape of Portugal and India. Eight-layer screen printed, double-sided accordion book. 7” x 26”, 2013.
Book with accompanying hand-stamped envelope and artist statement.
