Boundary as a frame
Boundary as a frame is a fourhanded work bridging classical film photography practice with an innovative, post-photographic method that belongs to the genre of appropriation art. The frame here is not only used as a graphical element: it is also functional and serves to describe geopolitical boundary as something that wraps the human being. The story is about migration from Africa to Europe; it is about all the people who live in constant conflict between the desire to live a normal, satisfying life and the countless political, cultural and geographical problems related to the places where they belong to originally.
