Type A: Barrier and Trigger

The artists’ collaborative Type A (Adam Ames and Andrew Bordwin) has consistently made work that deals with boundaries—both real and imagined. This exhibition brings together two radically different but related projects: Barrier, a modular concrete sculpture inspired by “Jersey barriers,” the concrete highway dividers that have been repurposed as security barricades in the post-9/11 world; and Trigger, a photography project that provocatively depicts the reasons Americans feel the need to arm themselves.
