Stephanie Syjuco: “I AM AN…”
Stephanie Syjuco’s (Art Practice MFA ’05) monumental handmade banner, I Am An ..., is a powerful meditation on the connection between identity, protest, and political legibility in contemporary society. When completely expanded, the stark white block letters read I AM AN AMERICAN. Installation photo: Stephanie Syjuco (U.S.A. b. 1974), I Am An..., 2017.
