Summary
In this installation work, the artist considers the wall, and connecting spaces that are supposed to be separate. Rau invites collaboration through exploration of the notions of barriers, passages, queerness, and connection. The installation itself is an interactive display of charcoal rubbings onto tracing paper, presented as segments of a wall, and visitors are invited to find their own paths through this framework
