Kendra Allgood: Hidden
My senior collection seeks to draw attention to the experience of refugees through a metaphorical exploration of what it means to be the unseen. Though the term “refugee crisis” is thrown around, there is little emphasis put on the experience of those who have sought to leave their country due to either political or social upheaval. Refugees; while they have escaped one hell, seeking asylum and living in a land unknown to them is often another. Hidden represents those who are not seen due to their circumstances and the eyes that choose to look away.
