Longing and belonging in Europe 2012. High-res version

This is our first collaborative project. We worked together with Lavasir Nordrum in his project «Wherever You Go – There You Are» – a digital poetry project with ambitions to poetically observe the wider cultural, religious and geographical meaning of borders. We also interpreted each location for our own project «Sendings / Receivings»

Our starting point was the beach of Guadalmesi – the point in Europe that is closest to Africa. We then moved to the beach of Eddalya in Morroco – the point in Africa that is closest to Europe. In both places the suited gentlemen explored the meaning of borders.

Eirik V Johnsen, Kristian Pohl and Lavasir Nordrum walked the beaches in may 2012. Read more about «Whereever You Go …».
