“On Boundaries” asks about the blended dynamic of borders themselves.

It intends to explore the duality at the very heart of the word "border."

No front and back, no here and there, no good side versus bad side.

It’s rather a connecting element that emerges from that unexplored area

between the two sides of things, pushing the idea behind a borderline and

our multiple imaginary or real boundaries, whether they are voluntary or

imposed, intangible or concrete, they determine our way to live and interact.
