variable size, approx. 720 x 500 x 600 cm
“The thinker” by Cuban artist KCHO, built from the remains of washed-up boats and flotsam, recalls the great human migrations over the millennia, which often lead across the sea. The figure tells of people’s struggles to escape misery and suffering, of their almost inexhaustible ingenuity in continually finding new paths to follow.
