Behind the Print
The inspiration for the project ‘In Between’ came from my personal experience living as a 1.5-generation immigrant. Relocating from South Korea to Canada at the age of 14, she has navigated life across four countries and eight cities. I’ve always wrestled with the complexities of my in-between identity; I embarked on searching for a home and a sense of belonging. Through ‘In Between,’ I encapsulated the emotions of immigrants and the intricacies of in-between identity. Overall, the work is made to embrace and celebrate the uniqueness of in-between identities and ultimately to promote diversity and multiculturalism.‘
