Two-person Exhibitions

California Polytechnic State University, Humboldt
(Tentative) Titled: Undocumenting

Upcoming, together with Amanda Stojanov (

We envision eight projects being part of this interactive exhibition exploring the perceptions and experience of the female body and visibility, as a carrier of cultural, digital, and virtual identity. We also share an interest in the topics of immigration, migration, assimilation, representation, and accessibility. Through critical play, performance, and interactive experiences, we rethink the development and implementation of digital spaces the female body occupies in opposition to social, political, and cultural norms. Although our topic is not new, the depths of our experience and debates over who should remain and thrive in our country, a country of immigrants, have not been fully explored.

There is no linear narrative line in the exhibition; instead, each piece reflects our distinct but echoed personal experiences of immigrating and creating a life in this country. We find ourselves at odds with the process of assimilation and what will happen to our language, history, and cultural belongings as we are told to leave or disappear while our ways back home also fade. We bring to light the unique burdens that our male counterparts do not face, and the effects our journeys have on the female body, physically, digitally, as well as virtually.
