Erika Harrsch, composite view of Under the Same Sky … We Dream, 2017-2019. Dimensions and duration variable.
Mexican-American artist Erika Harrsch first exhibited her project Under the Same Sky… We Dream in El Paso (2017) just as regulations became more stringent for those seeking asylum and a better life in the United States. Children of refugees and undocumented immigrants, known as Dreamers, entered the U.S. with hope for full citizenship but now face an uncertain future. This multi-media installation is comprised of imagery, music, text and furnishings that reference the circumstances faced by immigrants and refugees subject to the DREAM Act.
