Exhibition Preview: The Invisible In-between: An Englishman’s Search For The Irish BorderEvents
About The Event
Belfast Exposed invites you to the exhibition preview of 'The Invisible In-between: An Englishman’s Search For The Irish Border' by Tristan Poyser, in Gallery 2, on Thursday 28th March, 6-9pm
"Tristan Poyser’s latest project The Invisible In-between: An Englishman’s Search For The Irish Border, began as a response to the results of the UK’s Brexit referendum. Poyser has spent the last two years travelling and photographing the full length of the 510 km Irish border.
The materiality of the border is shown through a physical tear, making the invisible, visible. The act of tearing creates uneasiness, evoking notions of the political and economic tensions surrounding the border's position within the Brexit negotiations, symbolising the divorce of the UK from the 27 remaining states. The Invisible In-between shows the viewer the reality of the border & encourages them to explore the intangible nature & uneasiness surrounding it."
