Addressing the visibility and invisibility of the border wall, (in)visible wall, is an imposing site-specific installation that is a scaled replica of the San Diego–Tijuana border wall. It splits the ReflectSpace gallery in half and acts as a massive impediment to movement from one side of the gallery to the other. But it is also see-through, transparent, in a sense. At the actual border, the transparency of the wall is used as a weapon of surveillance. The transparency of the (in)visible wall installation subverts the wall's role as weapon against immigration and creates a space for the audience to see the artwork on the other side: so expanding the engagement on issues of immigration across the border.
Part of (in)visible exhibition at ReflectSpace gallery, curated by Ara and Anahid Oshagan.
