Flyover, Ghost Walk, Willie Doherty

Willie Doherty's Flyover, Ghost Walk 1985 hangs in Shoreditch House. Soho House curator Francesca Gavin says “This anger and beauty and politics feels very ‘70s to me. It’s like land art but in a photographic way, with urban poetry to it. I find it a really atmospheric image and it feels quite punk. The fact that it’s called Flyover, Ghost Walk emphasises the haunting nature within it. That kind of really brutal, empty urban landscape is something that’s being transformed at the moment so I think it’s a real moment in British time. The way the swoop of the flyover takes you through the space, it’s a perfect composition.”

About the artist

Twice nominated for the Turner Prize, Willie Doherty is a pioneering multi-media artist who works mainly with photography and video, often focusing on desolate locations and landscapes. Doherty was born in Derry, Northern Ireland and witnessed Bloody Sunday as a child and many of his works deal with the Troubles overtly or implicitly. His photographic works are often juxtaposed with contradictory text – as if to make the point that imagery can contain multiple meanings, or even conceal or distort the truth.
