POEMS WITHOUT BORDERS

The Poems Without Borders series (2018-2019) features the official tourism slogans around the world.

Tourism slogans market countries to an expanding industry fueled by low-cost no-frills airlines. Abstract suggestive taglines allow foreigners to dream up their own ideas about the countries they want to visit. The Poems Without Borders series (2018-2019) arranges official national tourism slogans of forty-eight nations into sixteen poems. The work is text-based and placed directly on the wall. 

Tourism and migration are the most significant manifestations of globalization, while economic, political and environmental migrants are routinely blocked at the border, tourists are ceaselessly wooed on multiple media and advertising platforms. While countries sculpt their national identities to make themselves more appealing for visitors, they use ethnic and cultural definitions to reinforce laws limiting migration.
