Repellent Fence


Postcommodity will present The Repellent Fence: the largest bi-national land art installation ever exhibited on the U.S./Mexican border, near Douglas, Arizona and Agua Prieta, Mexico. The Repellent Fence is comprised of 26 tethered “scare eye” balloons, ten feet in diameter, floating fifty feet above the desert landscape creating a temporary two-mile-long sculpture that intersects the US/Mexico border. With The Repellent Fence, Postcommodity seeks to build bi-national bridges between American Indian, Mexican and Latin American immigrant communities; demonstrate the interconnectedness of the Hemisphere; and reaffirm the indigeneity of immigrant peoples, as well as the original inhabitants of this region.
