Border Patrol is pleased to present a selection of works from 2019 as part of the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation 5 Year Anniversary exhibition at Cove Street Arts. The collective received an inaugural project grant from the foundation to realize R.I.P., a public art series that addresses the aesthetics and politics of death.
The series presented works by photographers, sculptors, performers and writers on a backlit advertising kiosk in the Maine Mall and on a grave site in the Highland Memorial Cemetery. More information about the project can be found here.
For the exhibition, Border Patrol will contribute a series of charcoal prints from the permanent memorial that was installed in the cemetery as part of R.I.P. Viewers are encouraged to contribute to the project by taking materials provided in the exhibition to create their own rubbings at Highland Memorial Cemetery in South Portland.
