Joel Tauber’s installation Border-Ball chronicles his 40-day pilgrimage along the U.S. – Mexico border and shares stories of people he meets along the way.
The installation is comprised of 9 videos; and also includes, in its most complete form: a map of Tauber’s route, Tauber’s baseball uniform, a series of photos, and baseball card images of some of the people that Tauber meets during his pilgrimage.
During its exhibition (March 10 – June 4, 2022) at the Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery at ArtCenter College of Design (Pasadena, CA, USA), the 9 videos—and the video equipment used to display them—form a baseball field in the space.
There is a “bullpen” in the gallery for people to play catch.
The installation will also be shown (in a different form) at the Adamski Gallery in Berlin, Germany. Tune in for dates!
