The print features 15 different metallic colors applied with a proprietary chine-collé technique developed especially for this edition. Intricately detailed dimensional chop with gloss finish. A large reed boat, overcrowded with refugees seeking asylum in some distant shore, floats in an acidic ocean.
The design of the boat in Passage is based on the reed boats of Lake Titicaca, made by the Uros indigenous people. The Norwegian ethnographer and adventurer Thor Heyerdahl built a series of reed boats, one of which was constructed by boat builders from Lake Titicaca, to demonstrate that ancient civilizations could have migrated and traded across the vast oceans.While also being a nod to The Raft of the Medusa by Géricault, the characters in the boat represent an overflow of cultural archetypes that are cast adrift in a geo-politicized ocean that allows for economic trade, but deems dangerous the export and import of humanity and culture. But then the boat can also be seen as an ark carrying the whole of humanity. Stranded on the boat together and unable to find safe harbor, the characters will have no choice but to eventually cannibalize each other. Please message me with any questions.
