 This installation echoes the Arab spring and the various reactions it triggered north of the Mediterranean Sea. It was first exhibited during the French presidential elections of 2012 when Nicolas Sarkozy was chosen a picture of the Aegean Sea for his campaign posters. That is about when the migration crisis became a critical issue and when the Mediterranean Sea started to look like a  Desert of the Tartars  for many a European citizen. As in the  See-food project  or  the 22nd century Woman , Président Vertut proposed wry and bitter “solutions” that reflected this atmosphere of wariness.
