Through the Repellent Fence: A Land Art Film

Sam Wainwright Douglas

SaskTel Theatre

Through The Repellent Fence follows art collective Postcommodity as they strive to construct Repellent Fence, a two-mile-long outdoor artwork that straddled the U.S.-Mexico border. Aided by the communities on both sides of the border, the artists installed a series of huge inflatable spheres emblazoned with an insignia known as the “open eye” that has existed in Indigenous cultures from South America to Canada for thousands of years. The artists “put land art in a tribal context” in “a metaphorical suture stitching together cultures that have inhabited these lands long before borders were drawn.” 

Free with admission or membership. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive early to guarantee your seat.

The SaskTel Theatre is sanitized between events with an electrostatic sprayer, meant for spaces that are more difficult to disinfect using traditional cleaning techniques.
