love this pictureI’ve been going through some old files and found the image files for a project that I did with Stefan Barbic at the 2008 Dakar Biennial in Senegal on the theme of economic migration called the Gorée Gazette.  The action focused on young men taking boats from Gorée Island, attempting to reach the Canary Islands or mainland Europe … and many dying at sea as a result of their pursuit for economic opportunity.  Here’s an article that was written on the piece thereafter.  I remembered this project when I saw this article on The Rise of the Artist Newsstand.
