Murdoch¹s photographs explore issues of gender and self, looking at the representation of the body in relation to its improvised surroundings. In these pictures ambiguity reigns sovereign. Here the artist becomes photographer and model, subject and object, at the same time. These works break with traditional models of representation and are influenced by the artist's inner world and her curiosity concerning a fragmentary but strong-felt reality.
Zoe Murdoch: Requiem for Fiction will run as part of the Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queen's, which runs from 15-30th october 2010, in venues throughout Belfast. For further information, or to buy tickets, visit www.belfastfestival.com or call the box office on 028 9097 1197.
