Nari Baker | Talking to Ghosts: Waiting in the River between Worlds
“. . . an art installation that doesn’t just have a striking concept but some deeply human content.”
-The Seattle Times
Talking to Ghosts: Waiting in the River between Worlds is a collection of messages from Korean transnational adoptees to their imagined birth families. Viewers are invited to listen through rotary telephones to these intimate messages recorded in South Korea and the United States at hospitals, homes for single mothers, door steps, and other personally significant locations.
Through this community process, Nari Baker and 11 other adoptees reach beyond language barriers, geographic distance and time past to explore the intersections of truth and fantasy, the human and spirit world.
