"Queequeg was a native of Rokovoko, an island far away to the West and South. It is not down on any map; true places never are." Moby Dick

The collective Mogas Station (Vietnam, 2005) presents a video work in which they are filmed drifting at sea, each upon a floating white surface, the ruins of a deconstructed of "white cube", a block of ice lost in a tropical climate off the Vietnamese coast of Vung Tau.

Mogas Station: Sandrine Llouquet, Bertrand Peret, Richard Streitmatter-Tran, Hoang Duong Cam, Tam Vo Phi, Gulschan Gothel, Vu Lien Phuong (in 2007, all based in Ho Chi Minh City)
