only the sun was witness

The installation is based on testimonies of refugees and is produced in collaboration with Jelling Asylum Centre (Denmark). I will make a workshop where refugees give testimony about their escape, from their home to an unknown place, through drawings and texts.

only the sun was witness consists of a used boat with a homemade sail.
The refugees have written their name in their respective language on the sail and then Syrian seamstress embroiders their names on the sail. On the boat, there is a metal box with a textile folder with the drawings and texts made by the refugees.

The boat will be placed on the water at Vejle Fjord in an exhibition organized by Vejle Art Museum, Denmark.
