Assembling of the aluminium pieces which compose the work
The sculpture is made up of four different layers, each layer is a representation of the Israel's border in a specific moment in time.
All the different layers have been assembled together with an invisible structure and hang directly on the wall.

"The borders change, in a century the world shape has been in constent evolutions. The borders due to conflits do move and seems to be like layers on top of each others. The consequence are forced migrations, humiliation, fights, frustration, ethnical minority but also reconciliation, peace etc... " Cyril de Commarque
