Abstract or Description:

In 2014, Kreider + O’Leary began to investigate a series of sites with a view to gaining an understanding of the mutating condition they call ‘The Interface’. Physically, The Interface comprises 13 different wall clusters (i.e. the individual interfaces or ‘Peaceline’ boundaries) situated throughout Belfast in Northern Ireland. Specifically designed to respond to an evolving set of local actions, events and spaces of conflict, the wall clusters both demarcate a territorial condition and form a backdrop for the performance of expressions of cultural identity.

The ‘Peace Wall’ clusters have existed and developed as markers of sectarian division in Belfast for the past forty-five years. Through architectural construction, filmic projection and written text, this installation seeks to explore the physical, psychological, emotional and imaginative effects of this on the city.
