E.R. Saba’s current exhibition WHO ARE WE.
Multicultural artist E.R. Saba studies the questions of immigrant children in modern America. Our beloved city, Seattle, is full of multicultural children looking for a singular cultural anchor. WHO ARE WE is the question echoing throughout these children’s geographically dissonant minds.
Physical identity as a consequence of physical location, or, the exploration of defining oneself by the city one currently resides in, is a comfort to the isolated. E.R. Saba works to depict the emptiness of culture and tradition, and to declare an accompanying death of origin and the euphemistic “hometown”.
This work focuses on connecting with Seattle, for all of its different parts and beauties, to live in it and to live with it–not as it.
