Hate crime is an ominous, prevailing presence in contemporary society. Borders, barriers and warning signs have come to be a part of our everyday life. Still, are we being kept out, or is something being kept in?

About

Originally commissioned for Hull City of Culture 2017, 20-21 is excited to present Annabel McCourt’s bold, visceral installation Electric Fence. Created in collaboration with interactive audio and technology specialists Interact and Connect, this thought-provoking and confrontational piece encourages viewers to examine the perceptions, challenges and preconceptions that impact us all in modern life, and compels us to turn to face them. Inspired by homophobic hate speech and resonating with Donald Trump’s ‘wall’, Electric Fence is grim yet unforgettable, and provides a macabre and powerful reminder of our own wicked potential.
