Selection of Works in Three artist exhibition: Opened Ground

Willie Doherty (Photographer)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

Group Exhibition at Void Gallaery , Derry of selected photographic works from 1985-1997

Willie Doherty's early photographic work from the 80's and 90's is a powerful reminder of how borders, primarily a political agenda, dislocates culture and the shape of people's identities and histories. The photographs document how history can mark a terrain and how memory is marked in the landscape. The series of photographs of the border document empty roads reaching into the landscapes laden with overtones of what came before. The poignant photograph The Road Ahead (1997) carries new meaning with the uncertainty of what is to come.

Artists exhibiting were Willie Doherty, Aslan Gaisumov and Amar Kanwar
