It is encouraging to see another response to heterotopia from an artist. Photographer Allegra Martin has been taking pictures on ferry boats crossing between Sardinia and Corsica since 2009, culminating in an exhibition A Bordo in Milan, running until September and co-curated with Anticàmera :
“My interest initially focused on passengers killing time during travel, portraits of the crew at work or in moments of relaxation, and then exclusively on the ferry’s interiors and details …. The interiors, with their sofas and cabins and carpets were perfect proof of this condition of ‘suspension’ – a place suspended in time and space.”
Looking at the photographs, I can see interesting juxtapositions with work by Vincent J Stoker.
