collage and video installation, 2018
A collage of photographs and a still video the artist took on a visit to Prato, Italy. Introduced to me as a place of cultural diversity and a birthplace of textiles, popular tourist descriptions of Prato disregards its conditions that are implied by a visit to the city's Chinatown; a place not for tourists, but rather undocumented immigrants and smoke stacks of factories. The title's context challenges the hierarchical connotations of "Made in Italy" compared to "Made in China".
