TO6411 in Lampedusa, Lucy Wood, 2013,

T06411

In association with Sink Without Trace Exhibition on Migrant Deaths at Sea

T06411 is a North African migrant boat, named after the official code given to it by Italian customs when it was seized close to Lampedusa in 2012 with 36 North African migrants onboard.                                                                                                              In 2013 British artist Lucy Wood, set out on an epic 4000-mile solo voyage on T06411 from the southern Italian island of Lampedusa to London, arriving in London nearly 4 months later.                                                                                                        TO6411 serves as a ‘floating art installation’, displaying many of the belongings abandoned by the migrants on board and films the artist made with migrants in Lampedusa. During her journey Wood also organised ‘sit-ins’ en route for the public to experience the cramped conditions onboard.                                                                                                                                      TO6411 will be moored for public viewing on the canal towpath near Granary Square, Kings Cross, N1C 4AA during Refugee Week, 17- 23 June, 12pm- 6pm daily.                                                                                                                                                           Lucy Wood will be available to meet visitors and discuss the project during these times.         www.sinkwithouttrace.com/t06411-a-project-by-lucy-wood
