Beyond the Pale: Zoe Childerley at Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries is a mixed media exhibition inspired by the artist walking the length of the Anglo-Scottish border. During the walk, Zoe met people who live on both sides of the line, learning about their relationship with place, past and present and their cultural identity as Borderers. The walk coincided with the Brexit vote, making the border again a focus of debate over sovereignty. The exhibition uses photography, drawing, mapping and textbased art to build a body of work questioning the notion of nationhood, landscape and belonging in the 21st century.
