"Made in the USA" is about the effects of immigration and exile on identity. I was born in Nicaragua in 1978 and migrated to the United States at the age of five with my Mom and four siblings. My work explores the displacement that I experienced as an immigrant wrestling between the imaginary borderlines of my native country and the country that I now call home. It highlights how displacement blurs the lines between countries and cultures and leads to a fragmentation of identity, while also creating feelings of never being at home and never belonging because once you leave your native country, you are a displaced subject who cannot return home and, in the new home you inhabit, you are foreign and different. For that reason, the faceless and plain figures in my work have a "Made in the USA" branding and are whitewashed with their real color showing underneath their translucence. These figures stand on a conveyor belt, alluding to generations of immigrants in the USA that have struggled and continue to struggle with the fragmentation of identity as they try to assimilate. Thus, "Made in the USA" is about raising awareness of the immigrant experience.
