Border | Akiq AW & Friends

Border. A conceptual line that divides or separates. Private from public, rural from urban, us from them, necessary from disposable, lawful from criminal.
‘Borders’ exists in different shapes and manifestations; they may be a system of signs or a spatial arrangement; they live in our consciousness as a collective understanding and social agreement.

Spending time living and working in another culture is a constant negotiation, defining your own border and guessing other’s. This exhibition is about these borders.

This project asks people to show and draw their own ‘personal border’ through a map, photographs, videos, painting, installation, or a collection of things that can represent the idea about this border.

Akiq AW is in Alice Springs on a collaborative exchange residency between Asialink, Cemeti Art House and ArtbackNT: Arts Development and Touring.
