Antique silverware, chain mail, metal, string

My sculptural installations relate my experience as an immigrant to the adaptation and evolution of animals. In the gallery’s fireplace, I have created an installation of hanging fish made from antique silverware, chainmail and other metal parts. This piece is a continuation of earlier works in which fish take on different traits and characteristics, a representation of my own adaptation to a new culture. These earlier sculptures, made of thin, transparent plastic sheets drawn on with clear hot glue, appear fragile and weightless. Fearless was created for the exhibition, the fish are clad in a protective shell of metal armor, which speaks to my continued evolution.
