“Language Barrier”. is an ongoing project by Alina and Jeff Bliumis, artists originally from the former Soviet Union. Site-specific installation “Language Barrier” engages issues of immigration, assimilation and alienation among the various diasporic communities of lower Manhattan. The artists selected five different sites in lower Manhattan, each selected for its contemporary and historical significance and intervene in various corridors with piles of foam “dictionaries”.
