[...] As a kind of visual poetry (fixed and in motion) and with subtle reminiscences of refugees and displaced people around the world –and while questioning the viewer– Hamzehian and Mortarotti portray these inhabitants of the borders (and all their polysemic meanings) and in doing so place a current, sensitive and courageous topic in the horizons of contemporary art.
It is a topic that neither the artists nor the art critics should omit, since our heavens are framed by ethics and poetics.
