Traverse is an exploration of the phenomenon of borders, reflecting both current socio-political events and a continuing narrative: the border as a physical barrier, its implications, and its porosity. Borders – geographical, cultural, socio-political – have existed since the earliest times. This exhibition proposes the act of crossing borders as a biological impulse or tendency that is hard-wired into our genetic makeup.
