Letter to Mama on Arrival to America
Letter to Mama on Arrival to America (2022) is a collection of miniature glass vials meant as a sensory letter to the artist’s mother. It documents the artist’s first arrival to America and her encounter with the country as an entanglement of material decompositions. By centring the olfactory phenomena of the travel experience, it locates the personal and humanising aspects of mobility in the otherwise disembodying process of migration.
Chemicals and mixed fabrics sealed in miniature glass vials. 2 cm x 1 cm each.
