Political statements (migration, terrorism); „Paradise“ and the meaning of it can change quickly in a fortress; the skin is the first line of defense, a physical barrier; the fortress of a person/individual through the face; creating a block of concrete which includes another work; communication with the work is based on the presence of a wall in human consciousness; another translation of fortress, it is "forza" or "potenza", words related to the human qualities; limitation and concentration during the realization of an artwork.
