“Over The Hills And Far Away”

About This Project

Over The Hills And Far Away (2019) draws attention to the contribution of arms sales by the permanent members of the UN and their role in fuelling conflicts whilst also shedding light on the situations of refugees as victims of war. The image of the little boy lying on the beach refers to Alan Kurdi and his tragic death while attempting to flee with his family. During the “European Refugee Crisis”, the image of young Alan went viral on social media, forcing mainstream press to report it and western governments to open up their borders. The piece also includes five little ducks in the distance, a reference to another piece.
