Peter Potter Gallery : 25 April - 4 July
'Working the Border’ includes work based upon or commenting on the Anglo-Scottish border and notions of national identity, landscape and history. All the work was made in the lead up to Scotland’s Referendum.
Reception: Saturday 16th May
Talks at 2pm by Alan Knox and ae phor who will discuss their work in relation to the show followed by the reception.
The title of the exhibition is borrowed from the work by ae phor, a personal exploration of the cartographic borderline, which includes the association of personal objects with places of topographical significance. ‘Schengland’ by Alan Knox combines screen shots of Google’s massive global surveillance program in Street View placed on the Anglo-Scots border, whilst ‘The Debatable Land’ explores the core footpaths of the Borders as roads which may be continually re-read in a political climate where regional sovereignty comes increasingly into conflict with European federalism.
