Wrap with aluminium foil

I was reminded of my visit to Kader Attia’s installation in Malaga last year, entitled ‘Ghost’, when I recently saw a photograph of migrants wrapped in emergency foil  ‘blankets ‘. Attia’s work was created to depict Muslim women at prayer.

However, I found the similarity of his work and this photograph striking; and this similarity was more about the overall scene as opposed to the precise message; gallery visitors walk past the installation, casually observing it,  rather like allowing the  ‘migrant crisis’ to be passed-by and not addressed in any significant way.
