Why do humans carve the earth into territories they claim to own? By what right? Historic, practical, unreasonable and unethical answers spring to mind, but the question nags. Alicja Gaskon's interest in man-made dividing lines,
the rise of nationalism in so many parts of the world, and in the barriers erected in attempts to control human migration, take the viewer deep into consideration of these questions and issues. She employs beautiful colors and forms as well as unusual materials and processes, all of which entertain the eye and mind as we consider the madness that our supposedly rational systems perpetuate across the globe.
