Object description

Del av konstverket "Hardship and hope: Crossing the U.S. Mexico Border".

The genesis of this installation was an altar created in 2004 to young women crossing the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. Beginning with a diaper bag found in the desert stuffed with fresh diapers, a child’s birth certificate, infant clothing, and a bottle of No More Tears No Mas Lagrimas baby shampoo, over the years the altar grew as friends, neighbors and humanitarians contributed more items gathered in the desert, articles reflecting the true face of migration, the face of family.

In the desert we discover hand embroidered cloths with loving inscriptions that read like prayer, treasured family photos and letters from children, religious artifacts and personal belongings carried close to the traveler’s heart like talismans, for protection and safe passage. Each object found embedded in the sand carries a personal untold story, an echo of the human heart, hope and longing, survival and defeat.

Utställningstext, Korsvägar
Föremålen är kvarlämnade spår från migranter som försökt ta sig norrut genom Sonoraöknen. Bakom varje flaska och broderad duk gömmer sig en historia, ett öde, ibland en tragedi. De handbroderade dukarna kan läsas som kärleksfulla inskriptioner, böner eller som meddelanden till nära och kära. En önskan om en trygg resa och säker passage. I en utställning på ett museum tillägnas de som minnen för alla de migranter som ofta bara blir ett nummer i statistiken.
Utställningstext, Korsvägar, eng
These objects are traces left behind by migrants trying to come north through the Sonoran Desert. Behind every bottle and embroidered towel, there is a story, a human fate, sometimes a tragedy. The hand-embroidered towels can be read as loving inscriptions, prayers or messages to loved ones. Hopeful wishes for a safe trip and a successful passage. In an exhibition at a museum, they symbolize all the migrants who otherwise are often simply numbers in anonymous statistics.
