The theme of migration and mobility is evoked by the image of flamingos, birds with a nomadic lifestyle which for the artist symbolize migration as a human, free and universal phenomenon. 'Migrants Who Don't Give a Fuck' is made up of vintage postcards of pink flamingos in various natural settings. Each postcard corresponds to a word that makes up the sentence of the title, ironically testifying to independence from rules and regulations that can limit their freedom of movement. The work is a poetic image of the animal kingdom, presented as a territory of absolute autonomy from the human one.
