The Border Crossers: Clyde McGill

 

21 April - 13 May

7 Days 12 noon - 8 pm

 

What are the borderlands? Who determines them and why? Who may cross? Who may not? Who does deliberately cross the borders? Where are they from? Why are they leaving? What are their hopes? What is their journey? What do they bring with them? Are they welcomed or turned back? Do they just disappear? Who cares? Who doesn’t?

In 2007 Clyde McGill began looking at borderlands as they relate to people who come by boat. He focussed first on the fate of a young Indonesian fisherman who tragically died on a boat detained in Darwin Harbour. This exhibition contains his story within a much broader narrative of the refugee who comes by boat. It includes works from the collection and the artist’s collection shown at MONA FOMA in 2016 along with new works made since. We will be taking the show south to Holmes à Court Gallery at Vasse Felix in early June.
