Philip Aguirre y Otegui

For his Gaalgui Philip Aguirre was inspired by Senegalese culture: since 1996 he has regularly travelled to this African country. Thanks to his visits to various refugee camps he learned about the social-societal context of Senegal and its population. Within the framework of Beaufort03 Aguirre worked with the theme of migration, port- and boat refugees, a theme that strongly lives among the Senegalese population. For his boat sculpture he was inspired by the Senegalese pirogues (type of boat).
