A world premiere presentation by renowned American artist Suzanne Lacy (2018 Festival Artist in Residence).
A three–screen film projection, The Yellow Line, was made with participants including farmers, horse–owners, scouts, hikers and villagers from communities across the Fermanagh, Donegal, Leitrim, Cavan and Monaghan border–line. It will be projected upon the front of the Ulster Museum building each evening from 6.00pm to 9.00pm on loop every 15 minutes over the six–day run, supported by a temporary exhibition featuring documentary interviews and the opportunity to contribute to the conversation about the Border People’s Parliament from 10am daily.
Created in collaboration with communities in Ireland from both sides of the border, Across and In–Between explores the profound impact the border has on the lives of people who live there. The project is in two parts, The Yellow Line and the Border People’s Parliament, deeply engaging border communities and over 300 residents in collaboration to create an artwork that stirs public conversation.
A co-commission by 14-18 NOW: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions and Belfast International Arts Festival and partially supported by the Government of Ireland through the The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Reconciliation Fund).
