Landsick by Rizzhel Javier

April 26, 2019 - October 19, 2019


The New Americans Museum presents Landsick an exhibit that explores the hybridity of culture, complexity of intergenerational relationships and study of bi national families. Through the archiving of family photos, Javier examines the literal and metaphorical impact of distance between first generation Americans and their migrant ancestors. The installation pays tribute to family history, their place of origin and migration home.

Rizzhel Mae Javier is a San Diego based artist. Her work explores the intersection of memory, culture and human connection. Rizzhel uses art to dissect her identity through the research and creation of autobiographical projects. Through sharing her stories, she hopes to encourage viewers to recall and examine their own memories and personal experiences to learn about the impact on their identity and perception of self.
