Opening in conjunction with @elbowtoe: Liner Notes at @rjampol Projects on Saturday the 18th ✌️ 

(Deracinate [dih-ras-uh-neyt] to pull up by the roots; uproot; extirpate; eradicate, to isolate or alienate (a person) from a native or customary culture or environment.) refers to the coerced movement of a person or persons away from their home or home region. It often connotes violent coercion, and is used interchangeably with the terms “displacement” or forced displacement. - Wikipedia.

“Deraci_Nation” is a site-specific installation by Nanook, Mata Ruda and Lunar New Year that serves as a memorial to the unknown victims of forced migration, displacement and oppression throughout the history of the United States.

Drawing connections between recent events such as the mass exodus of Central American migrant children crossing the US border, the continued wars on drugs and the poor by established structures of power and the historical oppression of Native American populations,  
“Deraci_Nation” creates a social space of reflection and inquiry through a collection of sculpture, paintings, screenings and objects guided by the artist’s lived experiences, travels, investigative research, and creative collaborations over the last few years. Full schedule of events and partnerships to follow.  (at r jampol project(s))
