“Space is not a scientific object removed from ideology or politics. It has always been political and strategic. There is an ideology of space. Because space, which seems homogeneous, which appears as a whole in its objectivity, in its pure form, such as we determine it, is a social product.”― Henri Lefebvre
Buffer Zones invites an audience to follow a journey though barricades, borders and partitions. Conceived during the United Kingdom’s exodus from the European Union, the division and separation of communities and physical space is once again at the fore, this exhibition brings 14 artists together to comment on geo-political, social economic and cultural impacts of borders.
Larry Achiampong & David Blandy James Bridle, Yelena Popova, Hilary Jack Sally Payen, Gavin Wade, Jeremy Hutchison Edward Clydesdale Thomson, Marco Godoy Simon & Tom Bloor, Ella Littwitz.
