Exhibition: Piers have always seemed scary to me.
Because they are always mentioned with work accidents and deaths.
For me, piers make their true face known at night.
When the darkness descends, when they are left alone, it becomes their turn to speak.
Sometimes they want to rule over the structure they are a part of, sometimes the whole street or sometimes the whole city.
It is as if they are the metal bars that imprison the place they are a part of, and take its freedom away.
Like a parasite that sucks the blood of the structure..
