Dispossession
Bellevue Arts Museum Glass Biennial
Bellevue, Washington
November 9, 2018 – April 14, 2019

“Dispossession” is based on objects found/taken/lost in the border crossing between the US and Mexico. Although that imagery is the specific inspiration, it is meant to evoke dispossession in general- objects lost, discarded, and forgotten through uncertainty and turmoil.

When researching the project I was moved by the region’s tradition of roadside shrines spontaneously created to memorialize the dead and missing. In response, I have created my own memorial which offers water for the crossing and a tribute to the hardships of the journey.
