  • Signature: with typed Kerlin Gallery exhibition label on reverse
  • Medium: cibachrome on aluminium; (no. 2 from an edition of 3)
  • Dimensions: 30 by 40in., 76 by 102cm.
  • Provenance: Kerlin Gallery, Dublin;Private collection
  • Willie Doherty recently exhibited with the Kerlin in Dublin in a show entitled 'Lapse', 31 May - 07 July 2012 which re-examined photographs taken by the artist from the 1980s and 1990s. Willie Doherty was born in Derry in 1959 and was awarded a BA in Sculpture from the Ulster Polytechnic, Belfast in 1981. Doherty's practice is inherently informed by his direct experience of the political instability in Northern Ireland during the Troubles. Using photography, film and video installation he explores notions of identity, territory, surveillance and history in the context of a conflict-ridden Northern Ireland. An artist of international renown Doherty was twice nominated for the Turner Prize in 1994 and 2003. Along with Dorothy Cross he represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale in 1993 and later represented Northern Ireland in 2007. Doherty has had solo shows in the Hugh Lane (2011), Dublin, Institute of Contemporary Art, Toronto (2009), Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh (2009), Kunstverein, Hamburg (2007), Laboratorio Arte Alameda, Mexico City (2006), Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2002). His work is included in the collections of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, the Ulster Museum, Belfast, the Tate Gallery, London and the Dallas Museum of Modern Art. In 1999 Doherty became an elected member of Aosdána. Born in Derry in 1959, Willie Doherty began exhibiting internationally in the early 1980’s. His practice has consistently addressed the representation of landscape, territoriality, history and the rhetoric of identity; exploring their relationship to memory and subjectivity and showing such issues as contested and conflicted. Much of his early photographic work incorporated text and since the mid-90's he has increasingly worked in film and video installation. For more than 20 years Doherty’s career has played a crucial role in the development and importance of ‘the documentary turn’ in international contemporary art.Nominated twice for the Turner Prize (2003, 1994), Doherty’s work has been the subject of many solo museum shows including The Speed Art Museum, Kentucky (2011), Institute of Contemporary Art, Toronto (2009), Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh (2009), Lenbachhaus, München (2007), Kunstverein, Hamburg (2007), Laboratorio Arte Alameda, Mexico City (2006), Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2002). Renaissance Society, Chicago (1999) and Tate Gallery, Liverpool (1999). Group shows include Manifesta 8 (2010), 3rd Auckland Triennial (2007), Venice Biennale 2007, 2005 and 1993, Reprocessing Reality, MOMA PS.1, New York (2006), Istanbul Biennale (2003) and the Carnegie International (1999).In 2011 Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane presented a survey show 'DISTURBANCE' which premiered his acclaimed new video work ‘Ancient Ground’. The exhibition was accompanied by a new publication and is currently on show at the Towner Gallery, Eastbourne. Doherty will present a new work at Documenta (13), Kassel in June 2012. In 2013, his video work will be the subject of a survey exhibition at the Museo de Arte of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá.

  • Willie Doherty recently exhibited with the Kerlin in Dublin in a show entitled 'Lapse', 31 May - 07 July 2012 which re-examined photographs taken by the artist from the 1980s and 1990s. Born in Derry in 1959, Willie Doherty began exhibiting internationally in the early 1980’s. His practice has consistently addressed the representation of landscape, territoriality, history and the rhetoric of identity; exploring their relationship to memory and subjectivity and showing such issues as contested and conflicted. Much of his early photographic work incorporated text and since the mid-90's he has increasingly worked in film and video installation. For more than 20 years Doherty’s career has played a crucial role in the development and importance of ‘the documentary turn’ in international contemporary art.Nominated twice for the Turner Prize (2003, 1994), Doherty’s work has been the subject of many solo museum shows including The Speed Art Museum, Kentucky (2011), Institute of Contemporary Art, Toronto (2009), Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh (2009), Lenbachhaus, München (2007), Kunstverein, Hamburg (2007), Laboratorio Arte Alameda, Mexico City (2006), Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2002). Renaissance Society, Chicago (1999) and Tate Gallery, Liverpool (1999). Group shows include Manifesta 8 (2010), 3rd Auckland Triennial (2007), Venice Biennale 2007, 2005 and 1993, Reprocessing Reality, MOMA PS.1, New York (2006), Istanbul Biennale (2003) and the Carnegie International (1999).In 2011 Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane presented a survey show 'DISTURBANCE' which premiered his acclaimed new video work ‘Ancient Ground’. The exhibition was accompanied by a new publication and is currently on show at the Towner Gallery, Eastbourne. Doherty will present a new work at Documenta (13), Kassel in June 2012. In 2013, his video work will be the subject of a survey exhibition at the Museo de Arte of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá.

A STRATEGY FOR SURVIVAL NO.1, NO. 2 & NO. 3, 1992 (TRIPTYCH)
David Godbold (b.1961)

Auction Date / Lot No.: 1 October 2012 / 192

Published Estimate: €6000-8000

Price Realised: 

  • Signature: each signed, titled and dated on reverse; each with Kerlin Gallery exhibition label on reverse
  • Medium: acrylic and tinted gesso on canvas; (3)
  • Dimensions: 41.5 by 34.25in., 105 by 87cm.
  • Provenance: Kerlin Gallery, Dublin; Private collection
  • David Godbold was born in England in 1961 and moved to Ireland in the early 1990s. He studied at Goldsmith's College, London and also holds a PhD in Fine Art and Visual Culture from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. Godbold's work is predominately defined by an investigation into the production and circulation of visual imagery in both high and low culture. He works in a variety of different media often utilising and reworking imagery from sources as diverse as Disney cartoon characters to religious and landscape painting from art history. This redrafting produces a droll humour, with the comic element heightened by Godbold's clever use of text whether this is directly incorporated with the image or in the title of the work. Godbold is represented by the Kerlin Gallery in Dublin and has exhibited widely in a number of locations worldwide including the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London (1988), the Galerie Nathalie Pariente, Paris, (1999) the Galerie Kusseneers, Antwerp (2005), and the Jack Hanly Gallery, San Franciso (2006). His work forms part of numerous public collections in Ireland including the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Trinity College Dublin and the Office of Public Works. Godbold was awarded the prestigious PS1/MoMA International Studio Residency, New York in 1999-2001.
