Five mature women artists are responding to Laura Mitchell’s provocation to destabilise the idea of a wall. The collaborative exhibition emerges from discussions between Laura Mitchell, Sarah Robinson, Annette Nykiel, Gale Thackeray and Tania Ferrier concerning the notion of ‘wall’. In the last five years, the wall has become a prominent International symbol, for example Trump’s US-Mexico wall, the ruined walls of Syria and the Middle East and those that impede migration across Europe. However, the wall need not be a physical barrier as gender, age, class, cultural and social beliefs and economic circumstances are also barriers that may create walls. The goal of this exhibition is to metaphorically disrupt the notion of wall as a barrier.
