Speaking to the transience or impermanence of experiences, Boundaries is an object with a certain liveness: hand-painted textile belts made of strips of canvas pinned in place to the wall – in its placement in Moi Tran's solo exhibition I Love A Broad Margin To My Life, Boundaries is presented as a grid of ten squares. In performances, viewers are supposed to play with the configuration of these flexible belts by changing the position of the pins or the placement of the weights. The reconfiguration is a commentary on the migratory experience of demarcation, or rather, the resistance of it, whereas the transportation of these pieces – they come in sealed envelopes – allude to migratory paths. When Tran and her family moved to the UK, they could only take a few belongings with them, things they could carry easily. With few exceptions, Moi Tran’s works tend to be portable or movable.
