Abstract:Today, many Africans living in Tangiers, Morocco long for the impossible: to cross the Strait of Gibraltar into Spain in search of better opportunities. Contemporary African artists Berth Searle and Yto Barrada use the Strait of Gibraltar as the backdrop for their distinctly different artistic projects. Addressing issues of identity, nationality and race, both of these artists strive to express the desire for something more. They use different methods for conveying their message, yet both emphasize the universality of the political issues of segregation. Barrada works in a documentary style of photography, while Searle uses her body as the subject of a video installation. Water serves as a constant reminder of the division between Africa and Europe. It is a change agent, ever flowing and moving, representing the fickle nature of humans and their cultural evolution. This exhibition attempts to redefine the concept of borders, both physically and metaphorically.
