Preview: Friday 22 February, 6-8pm 

TALBOT RICE GALLERY, Edinburgh, Scotland

Film still Revolt of the Giants, Van Brummelen & De Haan, 2008     Lara Almarcegui, Rossella Biscotti, Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan, Willie Doherty, Núria Güell, Ruth E Lyons, Amalia Pica, Khvay Samnang, Santiago Sierra, Mona Vatamanu & Florin Tudor    Borderlines  is a group exhibition that gives form to the conceptual, geo-political, economic and cultural impacts of borders. It draws attention to the ownership of the earth beneath our feet, underwater realms, the rules governing the international movement of goods, nation-states, the UK border in Ireland, financial sovereignty, tribal territories, anarchic polar exploration and the world-wide distribution of natural resources. Conceived to coincide with the UK’s scheduled exit from the EU,  Borderlines  offers imaginative ways of representing and thinking about frontiers, at a time when very real borders between the UK and Europe are being proposed.    https://www.ed.ac.uk/talbot-rice/exhibitions/borderlines
