AboutBORDERLANDS presents the work of the artists Christian Edwardes and Tom Hall, and of the writers Lee Mackinnon and Frank Brown. The exhibition acknowledges the edge of systems and the hinterland between places and social classifications; they are areas of flux and sometimes conflict. This exhibition is an examination of this relationship. The artists and the writers are navigating their way around and through discussions, joining each other's standpoints. The works presented in BORDERLANDS and the relationship between the two exhibiting artists is one of boundaries; BORDERLANDS shifts and tests the borders of these two artists' different ways of thinking, forcing the work together to deal with difference.
The artists have invited Lee Mackinnon and Frank Brown to have a parallel discussion on the subject of BORDERLANDS through which they explore new territories and take defined positions relating to the two different processes employed by the artists. They discuss and foster debate around the processes in which the artists work, basing the accompanying texts on these discussions.
