‘Working the border’ – Street Level Photoworks

Working in partnership with Street Level Photoworks Glasgow, and presenting an exhibition set in the unusual venue of Carlisle Railway Station, ‘Working the Border’ explores the geophysical & cartographic line that separates Scotland from England.  It borrows its title from the larger work by ae phor, a selection of which is exhibited in the waiting room on Platform 4, accompanied by a soundwork ‘Border Fiddle Music’. This space also includes a selected series from Jo Metson Scott’s ‘The Borderland’ project, being shown for the first time, alongside ‘Schengland’ by Alan Knox.

On the bridge linking Northbound and Southbound platforms, is a group exhibition on the hoarding with a series of works based upon or commenting on the Anglo-Scottish border and notions of national identity, landscape and history, including works by Sophie Gerrard, Colin Gray, Andy Wiener, Colin McPherson, Donald John MacLean, and Jeremy Sutton Hibbert.
