The Borders We create
Focused on the borders we create and the tension that is fuelled by a line on a map. Should we all be citizens of the world? What is a border but a line drawn on a map? Through collage Jessica Russo Scherr presents images that highlight the privilege and turmoil that permeates global migration. She creates views that erase the lines that appear on maps in order to look at the land without the political constructs that cause so much pain and agony. In many cases there are small bits of images or material that add layers of metaphor beyond the blurring of borders.
