Richard Mosse Catalogue
This illustrated publication accompanies Richard Mosse's solo exhibition in the Barbican's Curve gallery.
For his Curve commission, conceptual documentary photographer and Deutsche Börse Photography Prize winner Richard Mosse has created an immersive multi-channel video installation. In collaboration with composer Ben Frost and cinematographer Trevor Tweeten, Mosse has been working with an advanced new thermographic weapons and border imaging technology that can see beyond 30km, registering a heat signature of relative temperature difference. Classed as part of advanced weapons systems under International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Mosse has been using this export controlled camera against its intended purpose, to create an artwork about the refugee crisis unfolding in the Aegean Sea, off the coast of Libya, in Syria, the Sahara, the Persian Gulf, and other locations.
Complementing views of the installation and images of Mosse's past works are an interview with the artist by curator Alona Pardo and a text by Anthony Downey.
