BOR­DER­LINES

weld­ed steel profiles
var­i­ous dimensions
2015

The cycle »Bor­der­lines« traces cur­rent­ly aris­ing for­ti­fied bor­ders in Europe in the medi­um of steel in a scale of 1:50‘000. Thus a com­pendi­um of three­d­i­men­sion­al sculp­tur­al draw­ings cap­tures the process of ter­ri­to­r­i­al divi­sion haunt­ing Europe. The spa­tial imprints of ide­o­log­i­cal, polit­i­cal and social actions are chart­ed in a set of abstract lines, which allude to almost pure­ly orna­men­tal qual­i­ties, but at the same time map the cur­rent ter­ri­to­r­i­al trans­for­ma­tion of the Euro­pean continent.
