I know now… I am here is an exhibition about the process of immigration. As an immigrant in the US, I feel dislocated. This exhibition will display a series of sculptures inspired by my personal immigration process. The main piece of the exhibition consists of a translucent wall made of a plastic grid. A light illuminates the wall creating what I call a space in-between. As a result, I know now… I am here produces a feeling of empathy. Even though some people haven’t gone through an immigration process we all know the feeling of not belonging from one place to another.
