“Hey you! It’s us!” takes the Berlin Wall as a reference and reflects on the current phenomenon of enclosing Europe by building new walls and borders. The artist addresses our fear and puts a mirror in front of it – an uneven surface that reflects light and shadows, our own broken silhouettes. It is not the others but ourselves we are afraid of. “Hey you! It’s us!” is Borjana Ventzislavova’s answer to “fortress Europe” – let’s imagine walls as mirrors and take a good look at ourselves.
