Golden Thread Gallery is delighted to announce our upcoming exhibition with photographer Donovan Wylie.

The exhibition will explore Wylie’s Lighthouse series, 2016 – 2021. This photographic series explores the subject of borders in the wake of Brexit. The artist utilises the physical barrier of the sea to highlight our current borders and those we may have in a post-Brexit future such as the suggestion of a border between Northern Ireland and the UK.

Further to this, the Lighthouse series investigates the tension between closeness and distance, familial ties and separation, and identity and isolationism.

Born in 1971, Donovan Wylie is a photographer and filmmaker based in his native Belfast. Exploring alternative strategies for the representation of conflict, Wylie combines conceptual and typological approaches, and asks us to consider the role of photography within the contexts of preservation, memory and history.

Wylie is Professor of Photography at Ulster University, and his work is held in numerous public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven; and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. Wylie’s books with Steidl include Maze (2009), Outposts (2011), North Warning System (2014) and Housing Plans for the Future (2018).
