Borders, barriers and warning signs have come to be a part of our everyday life, but are we being kept out, or is something being kept in?
A bold, visceral confrontation, this thought-provoking installation appears ‘live’, providing a powerful and macabre reminder of our own latent potential. Stark and unforgettable, The Electric Fence awaits you….
UK artist Annabel McCourt has a diverse portfolio with work ranging from lens-based gritty social-realism, through to installation art, moving image and architectural interventions, inspired by fact, folklore & legend.
The Electric Fence, originally commissioned by Hull 2017 UK City of Culture, is currently touring with the support of renowned UK-based international curator Simon Hedges.
