Jane Alexander: "Security with Traffic" (Influx Control)

"Apartheid. The South African mirror" Installation at the Pati de les Dones CCCB

Reportage on Jane Alexander’s installation in the Pati de les Dones at the CCCB on the occasion of the exhibition Apartheid. The South African Mirror. A triple fence, topped with concertina wire, evokes the barriers blocking entry to European Union territory in Melilla. Various zoomorphic characters, a thousand matches, work gloves and machetes, a ladder and a hundred rubber inner tubes on dark earth speak of migration and surveillance, land resources, ownership and exploitation.
