The drawing 'Marienetta Jirkowsky (1980)' is part of an ongoing series called 'Walls Kill', a reflection on the impact of artificial barriers on the communities they separate, not to mention the ecosystems involved.
The work meditates on the specificity of border structures in relation to the landscape, while evoking the consequences of these barriers on populations who -- whether for political, economic or ecological reasons -- move from one place to another unnoticed.
The series includes references to the victims of walls around the world in the 20th and 21st centuries: in Germany between 1961 and 1989, but also in Israel/Palestine or between the southern border of the United States and Mexico.
The compositions are partly inspired by the 'Victims of the Wall' archive. Walls Kill
