Item description for Willie Doherty by Yilmaz Dziewior Francis McKee...
Willie Doherty works in photography, video and sound, reflecting back a world shaped by television, film and real and imagined collective memory--by the nightly news, movie fantasies and advertising. He balances on the narrow threshold between the documentary and the staged, questioning his chosen media's inherent claims to truth. His pieces, many of which reflect on life in his native Northern Ireland, have appeared at Paris's Centre Georges Pompidou, the Liverpool Tate Gallery and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. Doherty, born in Derry in 1959, was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1994 and 2003, and represented Ireland at the 1993 and 2007 Venice Biennales. Willie Doherty documents the entirety of his film and video work, now in one place for the first time.
