Willie Doherty: Loose Ends
Introduction by Robin Klassnik

The tour will begin at White Cube at 2pm and will additionally visit Arthouse 1, Tannery Arts and Art Bermondsey Project Space, finishing at Tanner & Co. More information about the event is available here.
Loose Ends is a recent two-screen video installation by Willie Doherty. Shot in locations in Donegal and Dublin the footage depicts two places connected through events leading up to the 1916 Easter Rising and its conclusion. Exploring how people, events and sites associated with the 1916 Easter Rising are remembered and imagined today, Doherty’s asks if a residual response to these events continues to be played out and how the voices and actions of one generation resonate in the unconscious of another.
Willie Doherty: Loose Ends at Matt’s Gallery is generously supported by Arts Council England and is commissioned by Arts Council of Ireland as part of the Open Call National Project Award and co-commissioned by The Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny, Nerve Centre, Derry, Donegal County Council, Kerlin Gallery, Dublin and Matt’s Gallery, London.
