  Guido Vermeulen

Received from Guido Vermeulen, Brussels Belgium
Here are some comments from the mailartist:
" is the famous shipwreck by Gericault. I thought that was appropriate because so many who want to immigrate to Europe for instance die in shipwrecks on sea. They take small boats from somewhere on the African coast and try to reach Spain or Italy but often they die or are found in terrible conditions."

Reçu de Guido Vermeulen, Bruxelles, Belgique.
Voici quelques commentaires du mail artiste:
" c'est la fameuse épave de Géricault. Je pensais que c'était approprié étant donné que la plupart des gens qui émigrent vers l'Europe décèdent justement à bord des épaves en mer. Ils prennent tous de petits bateaux de quelquepart des côtes africaines et ils essaient de rejoindre les côtes espagnoles et italiennes malheureusement ils meurent ou sont trouvés dans de piteuses conditions sanitaires."

Recibido de Guido Vermeulen, Bruselas, Bélgica.
Estos son algunos de los comentarios del artista: “ésta es la famosa balsa de Gericault. Pensé que era apropiado, porque demasiados inmigrantes que sueñan con migrar, por ejemplo, a Europa, mueren en balsas en el mar. Se montan en pequeños barcos en algún lugar de la costa africana e intentan llegar a las costas de España o Italia, pero muy a menudo mueren en el intento o son encontrados en terribles condiciones”.
