The Mapping Journey Project
2008-11
eight single-channel digital videos, projection, colour, sound

Bouchra Khalili’s eight-screen video installation The Mapping Journey Project (2008-11) documents stories of extraordinary personal agency and risk, narrated by immigrants travelling from northern Africa and the Middle East to Europe and beyond. Some of the narrators travel vast distances, others to only several cities, but all are linked by their determination and survival against difficult circumstances. Each anonymous person speaks both for themselves and on behalf of all of those who have fled persecution, poverty and violence worldwide. The lines they trace by hand onto large maps mark out their individual journeys and are accompanied by a voice-over narration. The destination points are represented as starry constellations, in an adjacent suite of prints by the artist.
