47 Faults between Calais and Idomeni


2017, series of 48, archival pigment print, framed,
each picture 50 x 75 cm, total dimension approx. 500 x 400 cm (variable)

A journey through Europe, from Calais to Idomeni. On my way, these 47 faults: filled trenches and bomb craters, dismantled or still-existing border installations, former ammunition depots, abandoned barracks, nationalistic monuments. Parade grounds, former concentration camps, scenes of massacres. Ruins and graves. The common heritage of Europe is not only hewn in societies and personal histories, but also in brick and granite, in asphalt and concrete. The ground has a memory.
A journey through Europe, from Calais to Idomeni. On my way, these 47 faults: 3 407 kilometers of driving, no eye for country and people, none for beauty. The camera only directed at the ground, onto a former and future shambles. Sven Johne, June 2017
