The Journey 2007- 2009

 

This is a multiple piece of work in progress, called “…the journey…” it concerns the dramatic endings of the torturous journeys of those refugees and immigrants who drown in the Mediterranean Sea, or are killed or amputated by antipersonnel landmines. It is an action of protest against human exploitation of any kind, preclusion, inequality, humiliation, and the indecent treatment of fellow human beings on this planet.
