Abstract

Shortlisted for EVA International, Ireland’s Biennial of Visual Art, Limerick, 2014, this multimedia installation explores the conflict between first-hand, eyewitness testimony to state violence and the noise of distraction and distortion: i.e. official/unofficial propaganda, media reporting and the casual, domestic consumption of media messages. The installation makes specific reference to Bloody Sunday in Derry, 1972, the miners’ strike in Britain, 1984, and the Hillsborough football stadium disaster in Sheffield, 1989, major events that still resonate today.
