In Tandem With Time, Rivers Become

I am humbly honored to present my latest contemplative installation entitled “In Tandem With Time, Rivers Become”. The space becomes a container for relics and ephemera from my on-going performances titled “Stitching Dreams of Leaving, Dreams of Roots”. My actions flow as two rivers. One is my public stitchings that alters the US flag from an immigrant perspective. The other is my participatory workshops that invite participants to socially reimagine what a pledge to the flag may be to create a sense of home for all. These undertakings are my direct responses to a tweet where four congresswomen of color were told to “go back” to their country by a former US president.

Like fragmented memories, “In Tandem With Time, Rivers Become” comprises of parts. Photo documentations, texts, and video works from my durational performances activate the gallery walls. A site specific participatory object anchors the central space that invites participants to place their reconsidered pledge to the flag back onto the object.

A public program to accompany the exhibition includes:
