Fractured Border is a nomadic installation that travels around Brussels, always trying (and failing) to take root for a short period of time. The work asks questions about what it means for human beings to constantly be on the move, to have to take root and get uprooted again and again. It is a vein throug the time of a human life and a wall composed of a series of vital moments that break and reconnect the wall. Fractured Border is a dotted line that stubbornly tries to become a full line.
This work was accomplished during a residency at Destelheide, together with Gino Rizzi, the students of GO! Atheneum Anderlecht, Françoise Matthys, Ann Coosemans and Eline Leonard.
Fractured Border consists of 22 modules that are set up in a fixed configuration. The form and content of the entire work, as well as the form and content of each individual module, were conceived and constructed by the students of GO! Atheneum Anderlecht, with us and plasticien Gino Rizzi serving as catalysts.
