Ink drawings, documentary collages of newspaper clippings and the text broken into a verse represent the processes of repercussions, sedimentations, accumulations, history/materiality of particular traded elements/valuable goods, sea trade/economy, migration, a surplus of production, bodies in transit, bodies in transition. Drawings are composed of body parts, developed out of fragments of intertwined histories, stains, frottage marks, lines. Those shapes are considered as islands, both physically and in terms of time. They are a type of landscape caught in the process of forming. The text is comprised out of a collection of stories, fact and/or fiction, related to migration, the movement of people between places, and the movement of the sea. Text and drawings together suggest different entry points into possible readings of narratives, histories or identities without a clear beginning or an end.
