All “I” Can Tell You

 

 

 

 

 

As an immigrant woman, I am evaluating the relationship between identity, vulnerability, art and territory. In the immigration process, learning to discriminate new cultural codes, words and signs involves looking twice and many more times. My artwork is a site to actualize myself in the position of an observer, one who can look but hardly touch or to be touched. I am searching for the spiritual borderland in which I can apparently find the essence of my own individual history and the context I live in, as well as getting in touch with my vulnerable side. I am also questioning my relationship between the self and the other, and the ways we can bridge over differences on the land we share and the territory we prefer to keep private.
