arthur analts’ latest installation explores the dual character of borders

borders, the latest installation by london-based artist and designer arthur analts consists of a series of wall-mounted steel sculptures. in light of recent debates and interest in borders, performing both as abstract metaphors and as physical barriers that define and protect nations, the installation explores the duality of what can be seen and the underlying, layered narrative.

analts draws on notions of borders from within political discourse and popular culture to reflect on their ambivalence — both as boundaries of our social and personal relations and as those imposed at the edges of nation states. the wall-mounted steel sculptures initially resemble chain-link fences, but on closer inspection they are made up of interconnected shapes of people.
