Richard Mosse ‘The Enclave’
Today I am going to plug the work of Richard Mosse.
To anyone within a reasonable distance I implore you to try and make it to Mosse’s Enclave exhibition. The show will engage all your senses through photographs and video installations.
I visited the work in the RHA gallery in Dublin. In here they present 3 large images in a room next to the video installations.
The images alone are worth the journey. The photographs contain expansive landscape environments. The environments themselves are extraordinary in their beauty, but the use of infra-red film gives the work that little bit extra. The viewer as a result is left with questions about the unseen in the everyday.
In tandem with the images we are presented with three different video installations. Again the work is displayed in a very large manner. All three videos are positioned in a manner and all can be viewed coherently.
The videos at times can contradict the beautiful landscapes depicted by displaying them next to everyday army scenes. These chaotic and eerie war scenes are very much seen as being the everyday in the Eastern Congo.
Please go visit.
