from the PPAC website: Un-drawn, a group exhibition presenting the work of J CarrierRichard MosseXaviera Simmons and David Taylor. Un-drawn offers 4 distinct perspectives on displacement and immigration from multiple locations across the globe. Collectively, they address how invisible or contested borders are revealed through images of the landscape, it’s inhabitants and the spaces or monuments in between the two. The images in this exhibition depict exile and migration, conflict and defeat, permeated by the desire to reveal a new understanding of place.
