alluding to illegal assistance of undocumented and stateless people, I

exhibition that provides a visual arts component to the IRW
interdisciplinary seminar.
Loren Schwerd has created a series of memorials to the communities of
New Orleans that were devastated by the flooding following Hurricane
Katrina, using human hair as one of her materials. “Hair acts as
the essential metaphor for these works by evoking a sense of profound
intimacy and absence, by referring to Victorian mourning practices,
and by incorporating the racial politics that have paralyzed the
city's recovery effort.”
