No Man’s Land
concrete and metal
‘No Man's Land' is a ruined fragment of cities that have become unmanned due to the destruction caused by wars. This fragment takes reference not only from a geography but from the whole world and history. As Jean Paul Sartre said in The Reprieve (1945) ''War is not an illness.. It’s anabomination, because it’s comes to human by human..''
This city fragment, unmanned by the hand of human, makes the viewers think that they will be able to position themselves in the city. But in reason of the scale difference and disproportion of perspective, it does not leave them the option of a position other than being 'the subject of Power'.
