GIAMMARCO AU 1168 is the last of the six shots of the artistic project Migrants (a cycle of artworks dedicated by Liu Bolin to the phenomenon of migration flows that from Africa to Europe) and it belongs to the series Hiding in the city, in which it is again the Beijing artist himself to be portrayed merged with the surrounding. The sixth location is the port of Catania again - as in the first and in third works of the project (The Hope and Migrants)-, on whose docks have been moored for several years a few fishing boats that have carried, each of them, up to four hundred people in one journey of hope from Africa to Italy. The title of the artwork corresponds to the name of the ship on which the artist stands.
