About the artwork
Limited edition Rohingyas: Floating on the Dark Sea, 2015 by Zarina Hashmi. This work was generously donated in support of Tate and is an edition of 100.

The image of the boat is heavy in symbolism, of travel and transit, of exploration and of escape. The Rohingyas originate from Burma and are described as among the world’s most persecuted people.

They have consistently faced human rights abuses and have been denied citizenship by the Burmese state. Their recent and on going exodus from Burma and from Bangladesh has led the international media to refer to the Rohingyas as ‘Boat People’. Each work is signed and numbered by the artist.
