Description

by Liam Kelly

Within Northern Ireland the notion of surveillance is a common, everyday concern. The artists chosen to present works within this exhibition all address this concern within their works, which vary from painting to installation, video and photography.  Willie Doherty’s photo/text works directly address the idea of identity and the watchful eye, the walls presenting both inclusion and exclusion from the other. The works of Locky Morris, Rita Duffy and Dermot Seymour all directly approach the modes of surveillance by including common subject matter such as helicopters, watchtowers and police land rovers. Although each has addressed the idea from an individual perspective, united they all present the concerns felt from the idea of constant surveillance and the watchful eye.  The works of Paul Seawright are photographs of personal identity, taken when he was granted free access to travel with the police in the vehicles, experiencing their daily routines and environment.  Each artist regardless of their medium has presented the notions of concern which have arisen from the turbulent times in Northern Ireland which were a cause for this constant surveillance
