An artistic installation that refers to those who haven’t arrived at our beaches in Europe. This piece is a tribute to the people who tried to reach our coasts escaping from fear and poverty. Unfortunately, the Mediterranean has taken their souls and their illusions forever, and at our beaches it has just arrived the shame: shattered bodies and small boats.
This installation consists of 24 branches with bony finishing that are an allegory to the bodies and the wooden small boats. Small boats become coffins, so the branch is made of red pine from the Mediterranean. The intention of this installation is to make aware of this tragedy and also serves as a reminder to the beach visitors. “Homage to those who haven’t arrived” is a traveling installation that is designed to be transported and easily assembled on any beach of the Mediterranean.
