The Long View: Gallery of Photography Ireland
THE LONG VIEW brings together, for the first time, work by Irish artists who have established considerable international reputations and whose photographs are represented in major collections worldwide. The featured works are the result of a sustained process of engagement over periods of months or even years. The exhibition thus marks an important counterpoint to the increasingly disposable nature of photographic images in the digital world.
The Lie of The Land: Gallery of Photography
An exhibition publication, The Lie of the Land , co-curated with Ute Eskidsen of the Folkwang Museum, Essen, presents the work of John Duncan, Anthony Haughey, Paidraig Murphy, Mick O’Kelly, Paul Seawright and Vivtor Sloan. Each artist carries the diverse cultural baggage of their irish inheritance, yet images in this publication and exhibition may not strike you as they are from conventional visual conceptions of Irishness.
Volunteer: Paul Seawright
Resonating with the topographical surveys of the U.S undertaken in previous centuries, Seawright has used the camera to reveal a hidden battleground located in the very heart of a global superpower. Starting in Texas, the highest recruiting state in the U.S, Seawright Visited over 500 military recruitment offices in fifteen states.
Things Left unsaid: Paul Seawright
In this publication, Seawright explores the theatre of war through the internal landscape of the US television news studio. Developing Virilio’s theories about electronic warfare and weapons of mass communication, Seawright focuses here upon the illusory nature of these spaces where information is selectively transformed into news. Characteristically Seawright continues his exploration of contested spaces and illuminates an invisible aspect of contemporary conflict. Published in conjunction with the exhibition at the Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris and The Model, Sligo.
