321 Gallery presents a dual-projection of Borders/Boundaries: Kashmir, the second iteration of Elizabeth Conn-Hollyn’s ongoing “Borders/Boundaries” project. This is Conn-Hollyn’s first solo show in New York City.

About

Over the past decade, Conn-Hollyn’s work has focused on both the literal and abstract concept of borders. Among her various projects, she has photographed “Welcome To…” signs between state lines; attempted to take studio portraits of everyone she knows in order to analyze her social network; operated a drone to create introspective videos of its own flight paths; and used Google Earth to create fly-over investigations of the border between the US and Mexico. Making work that is objective in appearance, Conn-Hollyn uses a variety of media to create typologies addressing the powers that control the shifting landscape we inhabit, and the issues arising from the bureaucratic representations of borders. Her focus lies with what is misrepresented and who is not pictured. In Borders/Boundaries: Kashmir (2018), Conn-Hollyn presents two video projections, Zoom Toggle Don’t Blink and Line of Control Border Tour, two works that explore the Kashmir region through publicly available satellite maps and imagery of the contested military control line between the Indian and Pakistani controlled zones of the territory. She has created soundtracks to accompany the videos.
