Willie Doherty (*1959 in 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.
