Hand Drawn Maps of Migrant Journeys
These hand drawn maps describe what it takes to cross borders without a (powerful) passport but they also describe life stories. Sometimes they are linear, hiding difficult journeys behind fluid strokes of line. At other times they are drawn to the rhythm of the body, where time is punctuated by the birth of children or counted from the moment of falling ill or recovering. They share a
common impulse of relating how the act of moving gives hope and being stalled becomes its opposite. In some ways they document our collective failure to care for complex lives not so easily compartmentalised into those deserving of refuge and those not.
