Let’s talk about borders, but not only the geographical ones.
Join us on the 30th of March at 6pm, for the PV of ‘BORDER//LINES’ an exhibition curated by Jessica Capra at Super+Centercourt.
Reflecting on the political and environmental context we live in, and the looming impact of the COVID pandemic, what are the consequences of borders?
In this exhibition a variety of faceted meanings connected to ‘borders’ are highlighted, and visitors are asked to actively think about the effects they have through the personal stories presented by the works on display. The three artists explore the meanings and implications of boundaries from a geographical, political, personal and human perspective.
Political borders separate countries, states, provinces, counties, cities and towns. They can be geographical – real mountains, rivers or seas – or conjured up. The definition of a border acts as the definition of an area which can be controlled by whatever organ, class or person is in power. Borders give a limit to this power as governmental, regional and local laws and rules can only come into effect within them. However, they can and do change.
Borders can also been defined between humans. By defining personal or emotional borders, we set our boundaries. These borders may appear as clear, but their presence is fragile. They can be temporary, liable or fluctuate according to the circumstances.
