Abstract

This exhibition constituted a major survey of Northern Irish photographic practice. It adopted a historical and thematic approach to explore three decades of photography that both originated from and was made in response to the context of Northern Ireland. This exhibition presented an analysis of the development of photography stemming from Northern Ireland, to not only explore its aesthetics, but to also question the extent to which the theme of conflict has dominated the critical reception of Northern Irish photography. The 200 works included in this exhibition, represented Northern Irish photographic practice, both in the development of its visual language and its wider photographic influences, to provide a comprehensive overview of the key trends and debates within its history and the wider contexts of contemporary art and photography. Details: Untitled I (after Caspar David Friedrich) (2002), Space of Doubt (diptych) (2000), Aura of Crisis (1998), all works are colour lightjet photographic prints, each measuring 122 cm x 152 cm, edition of three.
