Willie Doherty

'Remnant' at Solstice Arts Centre

Willie Doherty's solo show Remnant, opens Saturday 13 April at Solstice Arts Centre.

Remnant investigates the interconnectedness of place, time, and memory. Fusing voice and soundscapes with autonomous yet interconnected photographic and video imagery, the work is structured as a dynamic interplay, expanding the narrative, spatial, and atmospheric connections between still and moving images. Remnant explores how landscape acts as a repository of memory, as a site to construct and sustain images and myths of national identity, of self and of others.

With the passage of time, the histories of these places transform, becoming unstable, the fictions of memory.

In this new exhibition, Doherty explores memory as a measure of time and space, of dislocation and connection, of what is real and what is imagined.

Accompanying Remnant, Doherty's film ENDLESS and a separate programme of his film work can be viewed in the theatre throughout the run of the exhibition.

Show: Saturday 13 April - Saturday 8 June
Tues - Sat, 11am - 4pm
