Where Land Meets Sea, Lesvos Island, Jan 2016

Lesvos has become the unofficial ‘gate’ for refugees trying to cross into Fortress Europe over the past year. Lesvos is perhaps the largest ‘island’ on the archipelago of exception along the migrant corridor, along which physical and social space are set under constant negotiation. The rugged, mountainous landscape of the north is perforated by synthetic piles of survival, ones that challenge its legitimacy over the land. Curved is also the social terrain, with displaced people, locals and volunteers renegotiating social space in the island.
