Free Fall

Feb- March 2017

Instead of the possibility of some natural scenery, within the geometry that holds the place captive, there is nothing but the walls and locked facades that have laid siege to the city. These walls and facades cut across the images of the landscape, and then supersede it amidst a systematic visual violence based on maddening repetition. Identical blocks of cement and piles of stone attack the area, while the space, in its scattered existence, looks all the time as if it has lost its final battle with the place. The place itself resembles a heavy rock carrying the burden of emptiness.
