Two children stand in the middle of their respective "backyards" paved with an eccentric collection of hats. Caught in the lights of oscillating fans, they are spyed out and chased by crazy clowns. Arms flailing, the children run away in an endless cycle of pursuit. This installation takes as one of its starting points the fact that the gallery has a mirrored layout. This presented an opportunity to think about neighbourhoods and borders and our impatience and dismissal of those on the other side of the fence. Here, as elsewhere, everyone is the crazy neighbour.
