The sculptural series “Fences” was born out of the photographic work “Notes from the Upperground.” They are designed with a set of curvy elaborations borrowed from the headstones’ aesthetics. “Fences” considers everyday metal gratings or gates, so ubiquitous in Tirana today that they are commonly installed even in graveyards. They function as barriers, dividers, and markers of private property. The works ask that the viewer interpret signs and form when separated from the objects’ designated function and context.
