Méduses

The journey of a migrant as the movement of jellyfish. Sinuous movements on the high seas become dangerous and clumsy act in shallow water. The dividing line is the horizon of the sea, natural environment without boundaries, free from preconceptions and superstructures, far from the 'black ocean of the filthy city. The sea, the boundless sea, consoles our sorrows!'

[ITA] Il viaggio dei migranti come il movimento delle meduse. Movenze sinuose in alto mare divengono pericolo e goffo agire in acque basse. La linea di confine è l'orizzonte del mare, ambiente naturale senza confini, libero da sovrastrutture e preconcetti, lontano dal 'nero oceano dell'immonda città. Il mare, il vasto mare, consola i nostri affanni!'
