Informal Facilities in the Jungle

Calais on the north coast of France has become home to one of the largest informal refugee camps in Europe. During Piscitelli’s last visit to the ‘jungle’ to complete his long term project on immigration to Europe, he looked for a metaphor that represented the transformation from a temporary situation to a stabilised one. The facilities in Calais’ jungle represent the metaphor of a stable reality – shops, mosques, clubs, restaurants- where living in an informal economy is the only way to survive a daily life of discrimination and lack of rights.
