After Brexit, under the Northern Ireland Protocol it was agreed that Northern Ireland would continue to follow EU rules on product standards to prevent checks along the border. Instead, inspections on goods entering Northern Ireland from Great Britain would take place at Northern Irish ports. This has prompted criticism that a new border has been created in the Irish Sea. Under EU food safety rules, sausages are no longer allowed to enter Northern Ireland from Great Britain.

Belfast-based, Japanese artist Shiro Masuyama has realized a new social intervention using sausages to highlight this Irish Sea Border which was created after Brexit. Shiro Masuyama was born in Tokyo. Following international residencies in the Irish Museum of Modern Art and Flax Art Studios, Masuyama moved to Belfast, where he’s been based ever since. As a Japanese artist who has settled in Belfast, he’s in a unique position to question how identity can be influenced by the dominant political forces surrounding us.

Tar éis Brexit, comhaontaíodh, faoi Phrótacal Thuaisceart Éireann, go leanfadh Tuaisceart Éireann rialacha an AE maidir le caighdeáin táirgí le seiceálacha feadh na teorann a chosc. Ina áit sin, dhéanfaí seiceálacha ar earraí a thiocfadh isteach i dTuaisceart Éireann ón Bhreatain Mhór ag calafoirt Thuaisceart Éireann. Spreag sé seo an gearán go bhfuil teorainn nua cruthaithe i Muir Éireann. Faoi rialacha sábháilteachta bia an AE, ní cheadaítear ispíní a thabhairt isteach i dTuaisceart Éireann ón Bhreatain Mhór níos mó. Tá an t-ealaíontóir Seapánach, Shiro Masuyama, atá lonnaithe i mBéal Feirste, tar éis idirghníomhaíocht shóisialta nua a dhearadh ag baint úsáide as ispíní le haird a dhíriú ar Theorainn seo Mhuir Éireann a cruthaíodh tar éis Brexit. Rugadh Shiro Masuyama dTóiceo. Tar éis tréimhsí cónaitheachta idirnáisiúnta in Áras Nua-Ealaíne na hÉireann agus Stiúideonna Flax Art, bhog Masuyama go Béal Feirste, áit a bhfuil sé lonnaithe ó shin i leith. Mar ealaíontóir Seapánach atá tar éis cur faoi i mBéal Feirste, tá sé san áit ar leith sin ina dtig leis a cheistiú an dóigh ar féidir leis na fórsaí polaitiúla ceannasacha atá thart orainn tionchar a imirt ar an fhéiniúlacht.
