Paul Railton


The border between England and Scotland stretches just over 80 miles from along the River Tweed in the East and into The Solway Firth in the West. At each road that allows you to cross, there are signs to tell you which country you are in. Most of the time you step you are not sure which country you are in. Following the route of the border through the landscape, Paul Railton's project The Thistle and the Rose asks questions of the artificial construct of a border and the cultural implications that can manifest from bordering; social constructs of what makes one country or another are invisible along the line that denotes a border.
