Monica Miranda: SHADOWS FALL BEHIND
until June 4, 2022

“For the Shadows Fall Behind project, de Miranda has carried out an in-depth investigation of the land border between Spain and Morocco, on the North African coast. He toured the cities of Ceuta and Melilla trying to understand that other kind of warp that intertwines —always tragically— a border fence with migrant dreams of the promised land. The photographs show us the landscape that those dreams look at. As a subtle decoration, the artist superimposes embroidery of traditional Islamic patterns on the horizon of the Spanish coast. The red thread indicates here an imaginary cartography that transgresses the geopolitical drawing of this border and gives it the warmth of a texture, of something that can offer a certain type of shelter.”
