The Raft CrimeA: Maps of Fate, Part 3
Special project of 5th Odessa Biennale of Contemporary Art, Aug–Sept 2017 / InVogue Gallery, Odessa, UA
The Raft CrimeA is a performance aimed to remember us about the vulnerability and desperation of those who lost their homes and to call for solidarity. The Raft CrimeA is a platform to discuss the problems of the displaced and search in common for a solution. Thousands of people are deprived of their homes and go to the de sea in rafts, looking for a new life. However, nobody is waiting or willing to see them. This huge mass of the population is not marked in the maps and is drifting in the sea: The republic of migrants. Anyone can become a citizen one day. The Raft of CrimeA will be their embassy, a parliament for those who do not have a voice, a place or political representation.
