Best known for his large-scale installations and sculptures, Kcho uses commonplace objects such as oars, boats, and debris from his native Cuba in his works.  These materials allude to the massive migration of Cubans from that country following Fidel Castro’s rise to power. This work presents the viewer with the difficulties of Cuban emigration. The ambiguous figures in the boat are reaching for the oar that will get them to their destination. The out-of-reach oar illustrates the struggle of Cuban emigrants trying to escape their country under Castro’s rule.
