Windfinder – 2018
Aerosol on paper, 225cm x 168cm ( one hundred fifty 15 cm x 21 cm)
Windfinder represent the strength of the sea-wind in the Sicilian Channel, during the night of May 9th, 2018. The very night in which more than a hundred migrants were stranded in the Mediterranean Sea, due to a diplomatic standoff between Rome and London. The Migrants were asea for three days.
The arrows represent the Wind. The colors indicate its speed.
This installation is part of a series of works, which touch upon current political issues such as migration & European border controls. The works not only reflect the political status quo, but rather invite the beholder to perceive current circumstances from a stand point of the past, and how these have developed ever since.
