Border Crossings Issue No. 123

23 × 30 × 0.5 cm

The 123rd Issue of Border Crossings explores the liminal world of dreams.


Meeka Walsh’s poetic imagination explores dreams and the spaces in between. Far less interested in the recounting of a vivid dream, for Walsh, it is “the elusive, allusive space, the trails of confusion we feel on waking and best, –the sensation of falling into dream, slipping, Alice-over-rabbit down or into anticipation, that is a pursuit worthy of real effort”.


Robert Enright takes a close look at Alison Klayman’s documentary, Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry. Enright notes that for Weiwei there is no separation between public and private, nor between art and life.


“A Constellation of Narratives: Dreaming the History of Lost Cinema, An interview with Guy Maddin”.

In this intriguing and hilarious interview, Meeka Walsh and Robert Enright converse candidly with world-renowned filmmaker, Guy Maddin about lucid dreaming, the death of his father, and the idea of making lost or forgotten films in his newest project, Séances.

Maddin confesses: “I knew I would never make the originals; I’m not Gance or any of these people, but at least it would be something. I immediately thought of the contagion of Salome adaptations that spread across Europe in the late-19th century, when Gustave Moreau made his paintings and Beardsley his prints; Wilde himself, Strauss and countless others made their Salomes. So I thought, why not treat a lost movie like a Biblical text that you’re free to adapt and make your own version of.”

“Showing Nothing, Showing Everything: Tommy Hartung’s Search for the Sublime”.

In Tommy Hartung’s first Canadian interview the eccentrically unique video artist, animator and sculptor talks about his creationist upbringing, his intimate connection to the materials he uses, and how this all relates to his most recent project, Anna.

Probed about his ambiguous relationship to the narrative of Anna Karenina (the video’s inspiration), Hartung reveals, “I wanted to give people pieces, like with Hansel and Gretel and the breadcrumbs. I leave behind little traces of that narrative with which people can identify”.


“Shouting at the Silents: The Cine-Dreams of Delmore Schwarz” by Jonah Corne

Jonah Corne’s profound and lyrical essay explores the filmic qualities of Delmore Schwarz’s essential short story, In Dreams Begin Responsibility.

“Dark Utopias: the Dream Life of New Cinema” by Daniel Baird

Daniel Baird discusses the ethereal link between dream worlds and realities in the contemporary cinematic creations of Jeremy Blake, Ben Rivers, and John Akomfrah.


“Timekeeper, Timemaker: The Art of Julia Feyrer” by Lee Henderson

Beautifully linking the concepts of time and memory with that of dreams, Lee Henderson examines the work of inter-disciplinary artist, Julia Feyrer. Henderson’s careful reading of Feyrer’s films, sculptures and installations responds to the question: “Does our socialized
