550+1 - 2015

"550+1" is an art installation addressing the issues of human trafficking and prostitution. The sculpture spans 60 meters in length and consist of 550 male figures and 1 female body. The 550 male figures symbolize the estimated number of customers a Nigerian prostitute is expected to encounter within a year.

Completed in June 2015, the sculpture was first showcased at the People’s Political Festival and later exhibited at a Culture meeting on the island of Mors in the same year.
