Mare Mortum is a series of actions carried out on the beaches of the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands that consists of drawing large human figures in the sand as tribute to the refugees and the drowned immigrants. The action is as an act of protest for the inaction of Occidental governments. The sea erases human silhouettes in the sand just as it erases people on the high seas.
The action has been repeated in Calella de Palafrugell, on the Illa Roja of Begur, in Lloret de Mar, in Castelló d’Empúries, and in the Médano in the Canary Islands.
