Aidan Pedreschi | Pillboxes From our current exhibition ‘Reframing the Border’, a group exhibition exploring photographic responses to the border, curated by @gallery_of_photography_ireland, free admission, open everyday. Blockhouses were first used in the Second Boer War. On account of their circular shape, they came to be known as pillboxes. During the Second World War, the General Defense Plan No.2 was drawn up by the Republic of Ireland to deal with a potential British invasion from Northern Ireland. In the event of such an invasion, the Irish Army intended to tackle the British as soon as they crossed the border. The plan was that if a retreat was necessary, a squadron of cyclists along the border would use delaying tactics to halt the British advance. The Irish Army would withdraw to the Main Line of Resistance from the Boyne across the country to Sligo. Being an important port town, the capture of Drogheda would have been crucial for enemy advancement. The Military Defense planners established a heavy concentration of pillboxes erected at strategic locations: bridges, approach roads and on prominent positions in the south Louth area. The pillboxes were camouflaged from aircraft attacks. The few that were out in the open were half-sunken in the ground. Sods of grass were placed on the roof, hiding them from aerial view. Although they were reinforced by steel bars, the Irish pillboxes were made of poor quality concrete. The walls were not thick enough to withstand shellfire. The best hope was that they would help slow down an infantry advance. The surviving pillboxes are difficult to locate today. Neglected for almost eighty years, they are relics of a forgotten piece of Irish history. Biography Aidan Pedreschi is a Dublin-born photographer, currently living in Drogheda, Co. Louth. He gained a BA in Photography from the University of Ulster in 2017. His work deals with landscape and typologies, addressing issues around place and memory. His working practice is centred around walking and cycling. #galleryofphotographyireland #reframingtheborder #exhibition #photography #photographer #pillboxes #bunker #blockhouses #ww2 #defense #sligo #louth #irish

The Great Pyramids of Carlingford Lough, from the series IRELANTIS | Séan Hillen From our current exhibition ‘Reframing the Border’, a group exhibition exploring photographic responses to the border, curated by @gallery_of_photography_ireland, free admission, open everyday. Sean Hillen’s work continues the photomontage tradition of political artists, including the influential 1930’s artist John Heartfield. This influence can be seen especially in Hillen's more political montages of the Troubles in Northern Ireland. His photocollage work concerned itself with the contradictions, the black comedies, and the myths related to the Northern Conflict. “I had discovered the writings of Robert Anton Wilson and his notion of ‘Reality Tunnels’ – the idea that we are all, by human nature, severely limited in our comprehension and apprehension of the world by the web of language and ideas we have acquired and accreted and which forms our ‘reality tunnel’ – and that our job, to become more human, may be to look outside of the cave and beyond the flickering shadows.” His later ‘Irelantis’ scalpel-and-glue collages present a bizarre hybrid of everyday postcard visuals, elevated into a dreamlike and fantastical ‘other world’. Many of these highly decorative collages, showing landmarks from around Ireland, are no bigger than a postcard, as most were based on the famous picture postcards of John Hinde. Hillen adapts these nostalgic images, juxtaposing the familiar touristic shots to create an altogether different and complex image. #irelantis #ireland #seanhillen #galleryofphotography #galleryofphotographyireland #photomontage #reframingtheborder #johnhinde #postcards #londonewry

Patrick Kelly | The Land of Milk and Honey From our forth coming exhibition ‘Reframing the Border’, a group exhibition exploring photographic responses to the border, curated by @gallery_of_photography_ireland Now Open to the public, free admission, open everyday. These photographs are taken in locations that were used as IRA training camps during the 1970’s. There is a political and emotional ambivalence to what at first seem to be natural landscapes as they exist today, but which have fragments and traces hidden beneath the visible surface, disappearing from the landmark yet still flowing through the collective memory — surviving on a latent, unseen level somewhere between stasis and change… between wanting to remember and trying to forget. This work looks at how a political situation can fuse with a physical landscape and asks to what depth it can tell us about past and present human experience. In doing so it reveals aspects of the social and political context of Northern Ireland, of intimacy and unease and of the highest and lowest peaks in the spectrum of human experience. It asks how an external environment can affect inner states of consciousness and how history can manifest and conceal itself within a place. This project is an attempt to express and explore how feelings and personal experience can be communicated, to emotionally identify with my father and to connect on a different level. The work addresses identity, memory and place and asks how history is handed down from generation to generation, contrasting the “objective truth” of the photograph with the oral tradition of storytelling — times and places become merged together with fragments of truth and multiple truths existing in one situation. #paddykelly #galleryofphotography #reframingtheborder #photography #exhibition #ireland
