"A wreck recovered on the coast of Florida was filled with rubbish bags of resin. Abdessemed titled this work Hope in allusion to a shipwreck painted by Caspar David Friedrich, Die Gescheiterte Hoffnung (The Wreck of Hope, 1823-24), whose title expresses the idea of disappointed hope. The tragedies that often terminate the voyages of desperate migrants in various parts of the world have now become a daily event".
