Oostende, Belgium 2017- for @thcrstlshp
This piece was inspired by the long-standing state in Belgium, an inconstant integral situation that lives every day to the limit of disintegration. Separated into two irreconcilable linguistic communities, with different cultures, along with old ethnic discords and other stories, are the basis of the crisis of this fragmented country. Researchers said that Belgium is the country that was the longest time without consolidating its own government, paradoxically, its capital Brussels, is considered the European Union capital. It is said that if Belgium collapses, the European Union will follow its steps.
The image shows a person recomposing a broken pottery, it will be unthinkable to return it to its original state, neither to know how much it would be able to take once recomposed, not even how much it will be able to resist. Taking this from a more human perspective, this wall speaks about the fragility of life in all its aspects.
Many special thanks to @bjornvanpoucke @samir_doedekiheweune for all the love and care, many thanks to everyone involved in this project and to all Oostende neighbors for their hospitality.
My father Lucas was a painter, he used to do it in his spare time. When I was small I remember to stand beside him in his studio to watch him paint. He was the one who taught me to look at the works through the mirror to see the mistakes, custom that I keep. I carry a mirror always with me next to my brushes, I am not sure if today is still so indispensable for me or if I keep it for the simple company of his memory.
This was @aruallan who catched me while i was watching my wall through the mirror.

Berlin, Germany 2017 for ¨ What in the world¨ Project curated by @epricco from @juxtapozmag for @urbannationberlin ( photo by @wallkandy
It has been said that Berlin is planning to build a wall to protect Berlin Wall, partly from the tourists who feel the need to bring home a piece of the wall. Besides, one of the lucrative busines of Berlin Wall are the pieces of wall that are sold in stores as souvenirs to take back home.
All this brought me to think in the need of possess that we have as humans, to own, to have exclusive control of things.
Appart from this, thanks to @nikakramer chat, I've got to know that some protests took place in the capital following the withdrawal of several segments of the wall to facilitate access to the construction works of a luxury skyscraper. I think this image can work quite well along with this last story.
Many special thanks to @epricco , thanks to everyone involved in this project and to all the artists for the nice time shared.
