About: From March 2020 until June 2020 the border between Nova Gorica and Gorizia got closed because of the appearing epidemic of Corona.
The two artists and neighbours of the border where observing the changes of fences, policemen and passersby during this period.
The observations are showing circumstances of distance and support, of friends and family sharing goods and thoughts through the fence, of politicians and activists approaching the borderline.

Now, more then a year later, the pictures seem to be even more actual. Eventhough the fence was put down, or decorated from children of both sides, the barrier is still here: in the minds of the people, on papers, within new and old restrictions.
