Europe without Borders exists in two parts: a ball in the alloy brass, and a wall painting in blue paint. It is a reflection by the artist on the European Union which he made at the height of the refugee crisis. What if the borders of the European Community were entirely incorporated into the image, he asked himself, and the image therefore turns completely in on itself? He developed a map that could be turned into a geodesic ball, Europe having only borders with itself and becoming a world in and of its own.
