Bi-Lingering, by artist-in-residence duo Labkhand Olfatmanesh & Gazelle Samizay. Bi-Lingering is an extension of their ongoing collaborative project Woven, which uses their experiences as women of Iranian and Afghan heritage to look at the way cultural expectations and the effects of war transcend borders.

Bi-Lingering invites bilingual people (of any and all proficiencies) to share their stories of expressing themselves in more than one language by writing a letter to “Dear Bi-Lingering”. As a thank you, participants will be mailed a limited edition art card created by the artists with love. From the submitted letters, Labkhand and Gazelle will create visual art that captures and celebrates the experience of being a Bi-Lingerer.
