Installation art of Shan Hur from 2006 to 2011.

"When I see closed shops or construction sites in the city I look at them carefully. I can easily find these scenes. They are vague and attractive because the space used to be different - it is being changed into something new. Walking through the debris I have feelings that are neither positive or negative because certain things have already happened and are progressing in a certain direction. Such scenes interest me as they temporarily sidestep into silence and incompleteness. I like the way something is revealed in this gap."
