When The Caged Birds Sing - Site-specific Sculpture by Sudnya Shroff

Aug 18, 2019 to Oct 27, 2019

For her show at PMA, Sudnya Schroff will construct a site-specific installation: a giant wood and steel cage hung from the ceiling crammed with barbed wire, a shooting rainbow curtain and wire stick figures, the face of each a hand-crocheted flower. The stick figure flowers represent the global refugee community presently in limbo, incarcerated, waiting their turn for emancipation. Schroff explains that the flowers, created by refugee women from 17 countries who are housed at a center in Greece, symbolize the "tenacity of the refugee-activist collective resisting the darkness of fear while embracing the beauty of hope."
