"Home | Free" addresses the longing for a physical and psychic home in a time of increased forced migration, whether through the affordable housing crises in urban centers internationally, immigration laws, or other political-social reasons. Through an interdisciplinary practice of live performance, video performance, installation, photography, objects, and mark-making, I present works that reflect on the complexity, transformation, and rebellion that come with involuntary migration. "Home | Free" explores the use of home-building materials as art objects and the visual language of maps, lines, text, and movement — all tools to help the body navigate the world.

The live performance for "Home | Free" took place in the exhibition space, and featured musical guest Zena Carlota, as well as performers Gianna Brusa and Natalie Falero. The performance consisted of twenty minutes of mapping the museum and exhibition space, while activating the objects within the exhibition through music, spoken words, and movement.
