Working in collaboration, artists Parisa Ghaderi and Reed Esslinger have created moments of pause along the journey of immigration. They are interested in what happens to language itself when encountering a foreign culture; however banal or basic the language used may be, the margin for misinterpretation or exaggeration can be wide. Each reflecting on her personal experiences of decoding gibberish, navigating social circumstances, and coming to terms with the internal transformation of living an extended period of time abroad, Ghaderi and Esslinger’s work emerges at the intersections of their respective experiences of being alien. Curated by Emilia White-Javanica, the North Quad Programming Coordinator.
