Jeanette Casas – “Welcome” (detail)

Piece Statement:
Over the past couple years there has been an increase of immigration to the US from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. On a federal level, the US has not received their people well – the opposite can be said about their resources. This installation depicts an entryway scene highlighting the various imports from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala such as: mineral fuels, machinery, electric machinery, cereals (corn), and cotton. This piece brings into question the US’s continuing ironic and exploitative treatment towards immigrants and refugees.
