Richard Mosse

Richard Mosse has developed a body of photographic and filmic work that is both unabashedly aesthetic and simultaneously fraught with political and ethical implications. Through this unique unification, he continues to create works that pushes for radical rethinking of some of the most complex and intractable issues of today, such as the migration situation and the ongoing conflict in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Throughout his work, Mosse take advantage of modern camera techniques, using them in order to heighten the intricate and problematic matters. In his series Infra he uses color infrared film that registers an invisible spectrum of infrared light, rendering the green landscape in vivid hues of pink, making the landscape appear instantaneously enchanting and feverish. In his latest body of work, Heat Maps, he makes use of an extreme telephoto military grade thermal camera in order to chart refugee camps. This in attempt to foreground the biopolitical aspects of the refugee and migration situation that is facing Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.

Richard Mosse (b.1980, Kilkenny) lives and works in New York and Ireland. He is a recipient of Prix Pictet Space 2017, the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, the Yale Poynter Fellowship in Journalism, the B3 Award at the Frankfurt Biennial, the Guggenheim Fellowship, a grant from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and the Leonore Annenberg Fellowship. His immersive six-channel 16mm infrared film installation The Enclave was exhibited at the National Pavilion of Ireland during the 55th Venice Art Biennale. He has had solo exhibitions in venues such as The Barbican Center, London; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk; FOAM, Amsterdam; Portland Art Museum, Portland; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Nasher Museum of Art, Durham; Reykjavik Art Museum, Reykjavik; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; Akademie der Kunste, Berlin; Lille3000, Lille; Kunsthaus Graz, Graz; and MCA Chicago, Chicago.
