Lampedusa or the extended desert

Graphic art

Massimiliano GATTI [Italy]


Lampedusa or the extended desert explores the intimacy of the objects brought by migrants during their travels to Lampedusa, the southern island of Italy. Small unimportant things here are loaded with meaning. Each possessing a story that evokes a reality, the artist’s intention is to build narratives staring out from these fragments of life.
