BOAT is an evocative work that explores what it feels and means to be uprooted. Leaving home, long for home, search for home. From the protracted Syrian War to the ongoing invasion of Ukraine, BOAT honors the suffering and journey of people becoming undone, floating adrift, holding each other, building bonds, and allowing hope and dignity to grow anew.
