The Boat

This installation, which is a full scale art work of a Vietnamese fishing boat, was first exhibited in 2001 during the Tampa crisis of the Australian Federal election. The work is a chilling reference to the thousands of refugees who fled their homes and risked their lives in order to secure a more stable and safe environment for themselves and their children.
