Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL, 2017
A Year Around the Sun, 2017
Wood lifeboat, metal, fibers, polystyrene,
epoxy clay, and paint
Overlaying nautical knots and maritime objects in a
shrine-like arrangement over a ghostly overturned
boat, this piece is a memorial to the current refugee
crisis in the Mediterranean Sea. Suggestive of both
an aftermath of a wreck and a shelter, the piece is a
poignant appeal for empathy.
