N1 - Willie Doherty (b.1959, Derry, Northern Ireland) continues to live and work in Derry. His native landscape has been the focus of his work since his black-and-white photographs from the early 1980s. Doherty became known for his photographs overlaid with text, which dealt directly with the language of conflict as it relates to representation of place. He now works primarily in video, and continues with mediations on the changing political landscape of Northern Ireland. Doherty’s photography and video installations have been included in numerous international exhibitions such as “Cocido y Crudo” at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid (1994); “1999 Carnegie International,” Pittsburgh; “XXV Bienal de São Paulo” (2002); the “Venice Biennale” (2007); “dOCUMENTA” (13), Kassel. He has been nominated twice for the Turner Prize; once in 1994 and again in 2003. In 2006, his work was the subject of a video survey exhibition organized by Laboratorio Arte Alameda in Mexico City and, in 2007, the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus und Kunstbau in Münich and Kunstverein in Hamburg collaborated on an exhibition and catalogue, “Willie Doherty: Anthology of Time-Based Works.” In 2010, Doherty filmed for the first time outside of Ireland and this work, ‘SEGURA’ was shown at “Manifesta 8” in Murcia. In 2016, Villa Merkel in Esslingen exhibited several recent and new video works by Doherty. In 2011, his work was the subject of one-person exhibition at Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane. “One Place Twice: Photo/Text/85/92,” Doherty’s exhibition of early black-and-white photographs was on view at Alexander and Bonin in 2012. From 2013 – 2014 a major survey exhibition of Doherty’s video and photographic works “UNSEEN” was organized by the City Factory Gallery, Dublin and traveled to the Museum De Pont, Tilburg. In 2015, CAM- Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon presented “Again and Again,” a major solo exhibition of Doherty’s video and photographic works. In 2017, the artist shot a new video work on location in Braddock, PA. This work was included in “so it is”, an exhibition of seven Irish artists at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh. Nominated twice for the Turner Prize (2003, 1994), Doherty’s work has been the subject of many solo museum shows including Neue Galerie, Museumslandschaft Hessen Kassel (2013), The Annex, IMMA, Dublin (2013), Statens Museum for Kunst, National Gallery of Denmark, Copenhagen (2012), Towner Gallery Eastbourne (2012) Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane (2011) The Speed Art Museum, Kentucky (2011), Institute of Contemporary Art, Toronto (2009), Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh (2009), Lenbachhaus, München (2007), Kunstverein, Hamburg (2007), Laboratorio Arte Alameda, Mexico City (2006), Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2002).
