Willie Doherty

Willie Doherty (B. 1959, Derry) works with photography, video, and sound installations. Many of his narratives question the capacity of certain aspects of visual representation to convey the truth, a quality supposedly possessed by contemporary media. Doherty’s works occupy the narrow void between documentary and staged compositions, reflecting a world that is shaped by television news, the fantasies spun in movies, tourist-oriented information, popular stereotypes, and collective memory. The heated conflict in Ireland also repeatedly appears as a subtext throughout Doherty’s oeuvre.
