Incoming by Richard Mosse
Coinciding with his latest video work, Incoming by Irish artist Richard Mosse deals with the major humanitarian and political crisis of our time: migration.
The book recreates the immersive nature of the film – a searing and haunting artwork projected across three eight metre-wide screens, and accompanied by a loud dissonant soundtrack. Over 600 pages, still images from the entire sequence move from footage of a live battle inside Syria, where a US aircraft strafes Daesh positions on the ground, to a scene showing pathologists extracting DNA from the bones of unidentified corpses of refugees drowned off the Aegean island of Leros. The book and its counterpart opens a testimonial space of historical document – bearing witness to significant chapters in recent events – mediated through an advanced weapons-grade camera technology.
