POINT BREAK
2009

Material
Chainlink fence and barb wire
Dimension
variable dimensions

Crossing the space of the gallery on a diagonal, the chain-link fence becomes a new kind of border. The space of the gallery becomes an ambiguous territory, which questions the severity and violence associated with borders and property, particularly in the USA. In this piece, visitors must bend down to pass through to the other side, mimicking an experience of someone trying to get to the “Promised Land. In this way visitors physically experience the border.
