Bouchra Khalili at Lisson Gallery creates new maps of Europe with marker pen as he relates stories of people’s migration. There was a loud bellowing horn-like sound which I presumed to be a sound affect representing the arrival at a port, a major theme in this work.
It actually turned out to be workmen next door using some kind of heavy machinery as part of renovations.
