Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Group Exhibition at The Ulster Museum, Belfast which exhibited Willie Dohertyʼs video installation Closure, 2005.

Closure depicts a young woman walking in an enclosed space bounded by high metal walls. An accompanying voiceover describes decay and the visible traces of past violence, coupled with words which convey an unnerving sense of purpose.

'Closure is a captivating and unsettling piece of work and, unusually for the artist, centres on the thoughts and perceptions of a female figure.' - National Museums Northern Ireland.
