Rani's new neighbours want to replace the old fence between their two yards. But for Rani, the fence is no mere boundary. It is the centrepiece for a beautiful and tranquil world in miniature, which has been living and thriving undisturbed for years. As pressure and anger over the fence builds, more profound personal divisions become evident which will prove far more difficult to comprehend.
E. Ratnam Keese gives a unique voice and insightful perspective to an instantly recognisable theme, that challenges us to reflect on when we last took the time to stop and consider the perspective from the other side of the fence.
E. Ratnam Keese is a Visual Artist and writer. In 2012 she was shortlisted for the Calibre Prize for Mapping the Edges of the Night.
