Cage of Broken Dreams

LAAA/Gallery 825 – Los Angeles, CA – August 2019

Wrongful detainment. Unexplainable horror. The inside and out. The excuses and explanations. The blind obedience. The blatant disregard for human life. What did they do to deserve this treatment? What do we do to stop history from repeating itself? This interdisciplinary performance piece is a reaction to the shattering reality of the immigration detention camps happening right now in this country. As well as the relationship between now and the countless events of unjust human imprisonment that has happened throughout human history. Do not stay silent. They can’t fight us all.

An interdisciplinary collaboration between mixed-media sculptor Tony Gangitano and performance artist Kayla Cloonan for VS Exhibition
