Publisher's Synopsis

-"United States of North America (2009), a fictitious passport, that joins the three NAFTA members' passport heraldics: Canada, U.S.A. and Mexico. This piece expands the boundaries of these individual countries, questions the concept of nation, reflects on the NAFTA treaty and raises a conversation about immigration. The Monarch Butterfly, known for its migrations between Canada and Mexico, is an emblematic representation of a nation without borders; a linked reference with people's multi-national, multi-generational migrations that are increasing in today's global world in constant mobility.- Erika Harrsch 2009 "Erika Harrsch's work proves that borders do not exist when it comes to artistic creation." Graciela Kartofel, Art Nexus -Born in Mexico City, Erika Harrsch has lived and worked in Mexico, Italy, Germany and New York. Her image-making tools include painting, photography, video and a kind of scenario building based on elements in artificial and natural environments, which find expression in the form of installations and three-dimensional photographic works.
