Richard Mosse :: The Enclave

posted by Lo Parkin April 28, 2014

I luckily managed to make it down to the last day of Richard Mosse’s debut exhibition ‘The Enclave’ at the Vinyl factory (at the back of the NCP car park in Soho) this weekend. And although sadly it’s all over, I had to share what a truly amazing show it was. The remarkable exhibition showcased a culmination of his work in the war-torn region of democratic Republic of Congo, including both a video installation and selection of huge photographic works. Commissioned for the Irish Pavilion, Richard’s compelling body of work communicated sinister imagery and footage through intense and haunting beauty leaving you slightly disorientated. Richard’s psychedelic imagery in vivid red, pink and purple tones was captured on infrared surveillance film (originally used by the military to detect camouflaged soldiers) and depicted stunning landscapes, botanicals and portraits. Truly one of the best exhibitions I have ever seen.
