A Life Full of Holes: The Strait Project, features photographs and videos from Yto Barrada’s ongoing investigation of the city of Tangier and the adjacent narrow channel, the Strait of Gibraltar. Since the adoption of a common, closed border for the European Union created in 1991, North Africans are no longer able to travel freely across this channel, which forms an unique border – at once political, symbolic, and intimately personal – separating Africa from Europe. Reflecting a sensibility poised between the poetic and the documentary, Barrada’s images reveal the tensions, frustrations, and hopes that animate the streets of her hometown.
