Yellow Line

A three–screen film projection, The Yellow Line, was made with participants including farmers, horse–owners, scouts, hikers and villagers from communities across the Fermanagh, Donegal, Leitrim, Cavan and Monaghan border–line.

Created in collaboration with communities in Ireland from both sides of the border, Across and In–Between explores the profound impact the border has on the lives of people who live there. The project is in two parts, The Yellow Line and the Border People’s Parliament, deeply engaging border communities and over 300 residents in collaboration to create an artwork that stirs public conversation.


A co-commission by 14-18 NOW: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions and Belfast International Arts Festival and partially supported by the Government of Ireland through the The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Reconciliation Fund).

Across and In-Between is a creative collaboration between Suzanne Lacy and Cian Smyth with Helen Sharp and communities in PettigoTullyhommonCuilcagh MountainCastlesaundersonMagheraveelyNewtownbutler and surroundings.
