Title:
Up North

Author:
Glen Farley

Description:
“Up North” is a kinetic sculpture that explores the themes of refugee policy, immigration, migration, identity and longing. The immigrants and the European sweets they strain to see are separated by a concrete wall topped with razor wire, representing our increasingly closed borders. A music box plays “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” evoking the trivializing and ambivalent attitude of many to the plight of the increasing number of migrants and refugees risking their lives to reach a safer place. Since this is a moving piece of art, please watch this very short film: vimeo.com/129881361
