Walls can be constructed of almost anything and in their construction they are a way and an end. Between two neighbours, they are a boundary. Set low, they create pathways. Built high, strewn with razor wire, they are borders between ideology. Built beneath, they project edifices into the sky and remind us of our power. Etched on a forehead and behind a frown, they are emotions held separate. They are chalk boards for hate and tapestries for love. And they can shroud us in darkness or they can illuminate a room.
Captured here is a famous display from Brettos, a bar and distillery in Athens’ old town, Plaka. Proof if you needed any that not all walls separate: some are invitations to enter and belong.
