Sink Without Trace presents work by eighteen artists on the subject of migrant deaths at sea. The exhibition includes artists from Denmark, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Iraqi Kurdistan, Israel, Italy, Slovakia, South Africa, Sudan and the UK- currently living in France, Germany, Italy and the UK.
Through drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and video works, Sink Without Trace offers alternative perspectives on a subject that is often only presented through the eyes of the media and politicians.
The exhibition will include found objects from shipwrecked migrant boats in Sicily, anonymous drawings made on migrant boats and works made by unaccompanied minors in transit camps in Calais.
Sink Without Trace also includes photographic documentation of the forensic project relating to the shipwrecked migrant boat that is currently on display at Venice Biennale.
T06411, a rescued North African migrant boat will be on public display close to the gallery on Regent’s Canal, Kings Cross during Refugee Week (17- 23 June).
Sink Without Trace will present a public programme of events in collaboration with Counterpoints Arts, Refugee Week and Westminster University.
Proceeds from the exhibition will go to Alarm Phone (https://alarmphone.org/en/about/).
