Willie Doherty: Buried

Willie Doherty: Buried
Library Shelf Location 18.DOHE
Publication Date 2009
Description Published to accompany Willie Doherty's first solo exhibition in Scotland at the Gallery from 25 April to 12 July 2009. A highly visual celebration of two films by Willie Doherty: Ghost Story (2007), first shown at the 52nd Venice Biennale, and Buried (2009), commissioned by and first shown at The Fruitmarket Gallery. Conceived as a companion piece to Ghost Story, Buried was filmed in the same location and shares something of the same atmosphere. Both films deal with memory, its repression and return, and have the odd sense of timeless urgency that characterises much of Willie Doherty's work. The book reproduces stills from each film, with the text of the voice-over for Ghost Story providing a break at the centre. The book starts with a short introduction by Fiona Bradley and ends with Some Notes On Problems and Possibilities, a new text by Willie Doherty.
