OUTPOSTS: Global borders and national boundaries

Outposts: Global borders and national boundaries focuses on the ways in which artists have depicted and challenged the boundary divisions that distinguish nations in an increasingly globalised world.

Artists: Katharina Cibulka, Willie Doherty, Dragana Jurisic, Bouchra Khalili, Brian Maguire, Teresa Margolles, Dara McGrath, Larissa Sansour, Hrair Sarkissian, Javier Téllez, Jun Yang Curated by Chris Clarke and Fiona Kearney, in association with Professor Nuala Finnegan, Head of Department, Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, UCC Outposts: Global borders and national boundaries focuses on the ways in which artists have depicted and challenged the boundary divisions that distinguish nations in an increasingly globalised world. Artists are often the beneficiaries of international travel and exchange, traversing borders while exploring the realities of segregation and, in their work, revealing alternative viewpoints to political and economic narratives. Featuring Irish and international artists, Outposts explores the tension between a world which is more mobile even as nationalist politics draws up harder, more exclusive borders. From Hrair Sarkissian’s documentation of the disputed, self-proclaimed independent Republic of Nagorny- Karabakh to Willie Doherty’s exploration of the temporal and physical boundaries between Northern Ireland and the Republic, Teresa Margolles’ photographic and material remnants from the border town of Ciadud Juarez, and Katharina Cibulka’s sculptural intervention of wooden shingles from historically contested South Tyrol, Outposts situates itself within these interstitial spaces.
