A large group of people is forcing its way up aircraft boarding steps, while the aircraft is nowhere to be seen. Centro di Permanenza Temporanea (‘Centre for Permanent Impermanence’) is not only the title of this work, but also the Italian name for deportation or detention centres. Many refugees and both legal and illegal migrants, end up in this contradictory situation of ‘permanent impermanence’. Adrian Paci (b. 1969, Shkodër) himself fled his country of birth, Albania, in the 90s.
