Reflecting on the Mediterranean migration crisis, this project addresses the tensions between geopolitical conflict and humanitarian crisis. The Middle Sea is composed by a video installation developed through a montage of different recordings of the Mediterranean Sea, aiming to denounce the contradiction between the soft and calm movements of the water and its turbulent and conflictive geopolitical context through a constructed sea with no direction nor flow. 

 

Within this project was developed a collaboration with migrants from different countries in the form of visual testimonials of the stories and experiences of the sea crossings.

 

Commissioned work for BJCEM/MEDITERRANEA 18 Young Artists Biennale (Albania, 2017). Project developed with the collaboration of Dimora d'Abramo and ADFP Foundation,
