The artwork, designed to be itinerant, will be travelling to Belfast and beyond as soon as conditions allow. It follows up on a larger art project, carried out in 2019 at the Victor Jara Stadium Festival in Santiago, Chile  See the project page for details and a video, including interviews with the artist and with relatives and other participants.
