Uprooted II Installation
Uprooted II: An Ode to the 1.5 Generation is a public art installation that explores immigrant identity and displacement.
I belong to the 1.5 generation: immigrant children who were uprooted as young teens from their birthplace and taken to a new land. Coming of age in a new culture, we adapt easily, yet we don’t forget. We are caught in between identities—in between cultures, disoriented, searching, never feeling grounded.
The installation was exhibited in Travers Park, Jackson Heights as part of Queens Art Intervention 2017 and sponsored by RPGA Studio, and Queens Council on the Arts.
