At the core of Allison Streett‘s work is the conviction that to deny that we are broken is dishonest, and art that ignores suffering forsakes its power to facilitate healing. Most of her sculptures ask us to consider difficult topics, challenging us to acknowledge our true relationship to each other, and inviting us to imagine a more just future.
The work in the series Who Is My Neighbor is a meditation on human interdependence. With sculptures like Wartime Pieta, we can enter into the experiences of those who have suffered from war, modern enslavement, immigration, and miscarriage.
The series asks, what are people around the world and next door experiencing in our broken world? How can we care for one another? How do we better embody the truth that we belong to each other as fellow humans?
