Andorra la Vella. Andorra.
Installation. Video. Photography.
Forced and hasty exile, putting oneself in the shoes of those who flee as an exercise in empathy and solidarity. The artist’s own children drawn as refugees on the path of human rights in Andorra. The same place where in 1939, the republican exile saved the lives of those fleeing Franco’s fascism. In the 1940s, a multitude of Jews saved their lives in reverse by fleeing from the German fascism.
The installation consists of a large three-dimensional image made of white cloth on the Tartera d'en Carroi where a little girl is shown in the arms of her brother (emulating the iconic image of the myth of Enneas) representing the idea that we are all potential refugees. The silhouette of the figure is made with a dashed line as the borders were drawn on the maps of the Civil War of the 1930s.
