This is the first publication to document the work of Bettina Furnée. It tracks a particular project that has been the focus of Furnée‘s practice since 2004: If Ever You’re in the Area. Now coming to a close, this body of work has been developed inside and outside of the gallery, featuring off-site works along the East coast and exhibitions at firstsite and The Naze Tower in Essex. A complex project, If Ever You’re in the Area explores ideas of war, migration, fear and reminiscence associated with invasion of the coast. Furnée‘s site specific pieces have included lettered flags on the eroding coastline at Bawdesy, Suffolk, and signed Semaphore messages to the Principality of Sealand.
