Terrace (2012) a video installation and Gibraltar-Genoa a sound intallation (2012) are two pieces of work in this show
The 2 pieces presented in the Villa Croce, Museum of Contemporary Art, Genoa, Italy, respond to the theme of the island and isolation, to the specific site of the Villa Croce Museum with its spectacular windows facing the Mediterranean sea and to the historic, maritime connections between the two cities of Gibraltar and Genoa.
The Land Seen from the Sea, is devoted to the theme of isolation, in the dimension of the island. The project focuses on the duality between distance and vicinity and the multiple identities of the Mediterranean which includes Gibraltar (and Ceuta), and its relations with the Atlantic and English-speaking cultures.
