Of Wit & Will Publisher Suzy Kellems Dominik interviewed Irish native Richard Mosse during a one-on-one tour of his new multi-media installation titled “The Enclave,” featured at The Pavilion of Ireland at the 55th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia.
The interview with Mosse explores the juxtaposition of art as journalism. “Mosse’s installation is a powerful example of how art expression can transform the news. The contrast across mixed multimedia channels, the vivid hues of the infrared imagery and the ambient audio composition unfold a tragedy beyond language and imagination,” states Kellems Dominik.
Throughout 2012, Richard Mosse and his collaborators Trevor Tweeten and Ben Frost travelled in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, infiltrating armed rebel groups in a war zone plagued by frequent ambushes, massacres and systematic sexual violence. The resulting installation, “The Enclave,” is the culmination of Mosse’s attempt to rethink war photography.
Kellems Dominik’s extensive editorial coverage of the Venice Biennale started at the opening of the new Louis Vuitton cultural space and will continue through the summer on ofwitandwill.com and YouTube. In doing so, Kellems Dominik continues to take her readers on cultural and educational journeys across the world.
