In her first European solo show, Australian artist and ceramist Penny Byrne presents #EuropaEuropa, an installation work
at the Michael Reid Gallery in Berlin.
#EuropaEuropa is composed of a series of vintage blue and white porcelain figurines clad in the iconic bright orange lifejackets
that have now become synonymous with the refugee crisis.
Seeking to highlight the perilous journey undertaken by large numbers of migrants across Europe, #EuropaEuropa aims to
recreate the sheer quantity and desperation of those risking their lives by crossing the Mediterranean.
