Artist and photographer Richard Mosse reveals the stories behind the making of his latest film, ‘The Enclave’ (2013), in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which will be shown in the Irish Pavilion at this year’s 55th Venice Biennale.
G’morning small world. I ran into your sister yesterday. She had tiny meteorites on her necklace and her sun was teething. I used to want to elope with her. Y’know, just run away to Saturn where the rings are cheap. We never had the guts. Now she’s more beautiful than ever, and I’m a small moon, pock marked and worn, spinning on my head in a black room I rent cheap because light bends away from here.
