Works by Arthur Analts
In light of recent debates and interest in borders, both as an abstract metaphor and as physical barriers to define and protect nation states, Arnalts’ installation confronts the viewer with the duality of what can be seen and the multi-layered meanings underlying. Drawing on notions of borders within political discourse and popular culture, the installation aims to reflect on the ambivalence of Borders – both as boundaries of our social or personal relations and as those imposed at the edges of nation states.
The installation consists of a series of wall-mounted sculptures that initially resemble fences, but on closer inspection consist of intelligently interconnected shapes of people.
