The Wailing Walls is a piece in which Janez Jan¹a further deals with walls as temporary constructs in public space. It originates from the political notion of a wall as an object/space of separation. A wall has always been a cut in the space, a cut that makes two (or more) spaces out of a single one. A wall is a formation which divides, delineates, threatens… A wall is one of the most potent manifestations of (political) power: the Chinese, the Berlin, the Israel-Palestinian wall. It is always constructed by one party that wants to be separated from the other party no matter whether the other party agrees to the wall construction or not. The same as in the most part of the Western world, the political space in Slovenia is still most often separated by the view of the past charged with ideology, taking historical credits and accusations of historical injustice. The matrix of the political is still determined by red and black.
