A new art installation by Sara Santamaria, comprises sculptural works that address the idea of immigration and tap into themes of memoir, displacement, and identity.
For many people today who are displaced because of various social, political, or personal reasons, the concept of home is probably best recognized as a sense of being between places, instead of being rooted in one particular place and one unique identity. “Who comes today and stays tomorrow” explores the aspects of dislocation and adaptation generated by the difficult decision to uproot oneself and cross borders in search of a new home.
Mobility implies self-redefinition in relation to the place of arrival. By revisiting childhood memories from a position of displacement, the artist navigates the divisions between homelessness and origin, dislocation and belonging, culture and place.
The exhibition is to remain on view through July 1.
