Turner Prize winner Duncan Campbell’s early work Falls Burns Malone Fiddles (2004) is the subject of his screening, and is presented alongside the short abstract work o Joan, no (2006). Campbell takes the Belfast Community Photographic Archives as his main source for this documentary-like work which explores the gaps between fact and fiction. Several of his recent works including Bernadette (2008) and Make It New John (2009) build profiles of individuals who were socially or politically engaged with the Northern Irish politics of the late 20th Century, while his recent film It for Others (2013) takes its influence from a film by filmmakers Chris Marker and Alain Resnais, reveals Campbell’s interest in film as a socially and anthropologically loaded device.    

 

Duncan Campbell (b. 1971, Dublin, Ireland) lives and works in Glasgow. His recent solo exhibitions include Duncan Campbell, IMMA, Dublin (2014); Generation, The Common Guild, Glasgow; and Duncan Campbell; Bernadette, G.MK gallery, Zagreb (all 2014). Group exhibitions include Turner Prize 2014, Tate Britain, London; The Act of Seeing With One’s Own Eyes, CAG Vancouver (2014); Reflections on Documentary After Richard Leacock, Temporary Gallery, Cologne (2013); and Arbeidstid, Henie Onstad Art Centre, Høvikodden (2013).
