Fences & Neighbors @ FiveMyles in Brooklyn thru May 8
Fences & Neighbors is a mixed media installation inspired by Janet Goldner’s research trip to Arizona in 2014.
As the fever pitch around migration mounted in 2014, Janet went to see for herself. Working with theTucson Arts Brigade and the US Department of Arts and Culture, she spent a week on and around the border learning from migrants and residents.
A woven barbed wire fence divides the gallery. On the far side is a projected video of stories of migrants. Viewers can see the video thru the fence but they can’t go there. On the near side are Goldner’s photographs of migrants’ journey from her trip to Arizona.
