When Liz Gordon of LIz’s Loft told me the theme for this show was inspired by Ai Weiwei’s documentary film Human Flow and that it would address refugees , I wasn’t sure how to approach such a heavy topic. Then it came to me to do work about the refugees I see on the street everyday here in LA. People who are fleeing oppression everyday… in their own country.
I imagine these pieces might be something a homeless woman might wear to keep her life safe on her person , concealed under her clothes. All the materials were found on the streets of LA.
