“Lat: 39o 05’N Long: 016o 05’E” are the coordinates of the spot where the boat Jolly Rosso once ran ashore. It has become a symbol for the “boats to be lost” affair – an illegal practice of toxic waste disposal that is devastating to the planet. This is just one of several themes that inspire the artistic research of Eva Sauer. She uses photography, installation and relational practices to explore a variety of connections among things such as relationships between politics and the weapons industry, criminality and ecological emergencies as well as bad information and false information.
The exhibition at SRISA Gallery presents works inspired about the awareness of an invisible web of relationships and trade that takes place throughout the Mediterranean Sea. Real places and concealed crimes become the hub for a vast project: where the symbolical space of art develops into a brave and clear sighted investigation about the present moment that goes beyond what is visible and what is sayable.
