Los Angeles artist Pam Douglas will open Part One of her multi-year installation project, Sanctuary, at TAG on September 29. Running  through October 19, there will be an opening reception on Saturday Sept. 28, 5-8pm

Part One of Sanctuary looks at refugees who travel by land. Life-size figures are drawn in charcoal on raw linen and draped ceiling to floor. These are parents and children seeking refuge. Used coffee bean bags stand as metaphor for the commodification of these families and the rejection they find at the borders of western nations. Part Two will examine the plight of refugees who come by sea.

"We are in a startling time, hearing the cries of children torn from their parents," says Douglas "Around the world, refugees seeking sanctuary compel my new work in a visceral response." 

Working with paint and assemblage, Douglas has been creating works that seek meaning in spirit and body. In Sanctuary, she seeks to involve the viewer in the refugee's experience and restore their humanity to our eyes.
