Site specific intervention, 2024 

Ferry services to Northern Ireland relocated from Stranraer in 2011 after providing industry, connection and culture to the area for over 150 years. Since the departure, Stranraer’s East Pier has become a wasteland of disuse, with public access to 18 acres of privately owned waterfront prohibited by steel fencing. This monumental beacon holds the past, present and future of an entire people behind its bars, a landmark of connection stolen by corporations. 5 anonymous shadows now occupy its borders, the ghosts of shared pasts and evocations for imagined futures. The East Pier is a portal, an ice berg and a lighthouse. Through these figures we can imagine ourselves within and picture horizons without fences.
