FAÇADE PROJECT, 2016
MIRROR GLASS FILM, NATO WIRE/RAZOR WIRE, SIZE VARIABLE
“Hey you! It’s us!” takes the Berlin Wall as a reference and reflects on
the current phenomenon of enclosing Europe by building new walls and borders. The artist addresses our fear and puts a mirror in front of it – an uneven surface that reflects light and shadows, our own broken silhou- ettes. It is not the others but ourselves we are afraid of. “Hey you! It’s us!” is Borjana Ventzislavova’s answer to “fortress Europe”– let’s imagine walls as mirrors and take a good look at ourselves.
