Fencelines

Ruben Irons, Fenn Martin & Raina McDonald

Fencelines is an immersive artwork combining the blacksmithing of Ruben Irons, ceramics by Fenn Martin and gestural drawing by Raina McDonald. These Antigonish based artists share their collaborative exploration of the rural lanscape, ownership, permissions and borders. Given the current global climate of fear and separation, this fence and gate with imagery reflecting on rural outmigration and the collapse of small farms, is an elegy and challenge to re-imagine rural life in Nova Scotia.
