Images by nine contemporary artists have been installed at sites around the borderlands 100 years on from events that marked partition and the formation of Northern Ireland. Newry man Seán Hillen is one of the artists featured. 

Reframing 100 is a month-long installation using billboard sites straddling both sides of the border to feature artists whose work responds to the area. Each of the sites features a contemporary response from artists Enda Bowe, Kate Nolan, Brian Newman, Kevin Fox, Dragana Jurišić, Nigel Swann, Anthony Haughey, Ciaran Dunbar and Seán Hillen.

One of Anthony Haughey’s works, from his series Field Notes from the Border, features a quote from the late author and poet Seamus Deane who gave permission for its use shortly before his death. This billboard will be on display next to the railway station in the Waterside area of Derry~Londonderry until the end of May.

The innovative project is a cross-border collaboration between the Nerve Centre in Derry~Londonderry and Gallery of Photography Ireland, building on previous exhibitions The Lost Moment and Field Notes from the Border. It is delivered in partnership with the Nerve Centre’s Making the Future project and Gallery of Photography Ireland’s Reframing the Border project. 

Reframing the Border is a 5-year programme exploring the diverse geographical, psychological and imagined spaces of the borderlands to offer creative insights into the issues affecting border communities.

Niall Kerr, Making the Future Project Manager at the Nerve Centre, said “Making the Future provides opportunities for people to engage with our heritage in new and innovative ways, while using their creativity to use their voice and to have a say. We’re delighted to continue our partnership with the Gallery of Photography Ireland and to work on a cross-border basis on this unique initiative that will help to spark discussion and debate about the impact and legacy of the last 100 years.”

Alongside the billboards, the public are also being invited to share their photos with the projects @Reframing_100 instagram to create a real time archive.

Trish Lambe, Director of the Gallery of Photography, said “We are delighted to work with the Nerve Centre on the Reframing 100 project. The @Reframing_100 Instagram will share the artists’ work and invite people to showcase their own photographs to make visible aspects of life and share thoughts on how the last century has shaped and defined our identities and landscapes.”
