Ghost-Haunted Land

Declan Long

Manchester University Press

Chapter four begins by further discussing the haunted spaces of Doherty’s practice as the starting point for a reflection on artists’ approaches to time and history. This part of the book highlights artists who have adapted conventional forms of documenting and archiving in order to speculate on alternative temporalities and histories of Troubles and post-Troubles life. In addition to analyses of artworks by artists such as Duncan Campbell (winner of the 2014 Turner Prize) and Miriam de Búrca, who both adapt documentary processes in an art context, attention is paid to art that studies the history of Belfast through psychogeographic urban wandering and to some curatorial attempts to historicise Northern Ireland’s art.
