El Dorado / MS St Louis
El Dorado / MS St Louis
2021

Shrago-Spechler’s installation “El Dorado” explores sea and ship as places of desperation, rootlessness and possibility. The boat was made from recycled paper, cardboard and salvaged furniture from El Dorado Furniture. Inside the boat, the sculptures are inspired by archives, news clippings and oral histories of migrants who traveled to the Port of Miami.
