Descripción

In 2017, after his work at the street level in Dublin, Eamonn Doyle directed his interests toward the Irish region of Connemara. However, that same year, as he began to shape a new project, his mother Katherine passed away. K, the series to which K-07 belongs, appeared a year later as an ensemble of images merging the new geographies Doyle was exploring, an expression of his grief, and a study on grieving and its forms of representation.

The series addressed the ideas of Bob Quinn explored in his Atlantean project, where he pointed to the possible cultural connections between the Irish seafaring people of the Connemara Coast and the people of the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa. Attracted by the echoes of cultural continuity in traditional Irish grieving songs, Doyle incorporated a musical composition by David Donohoe to accompany the series, which could be heard while it was exhibited at Fundación MAFPRE in 2019.

The photographs in K depict a ghostly figure draped in changing colors, similar to those that appear in Quad by Samuel Beckett, and are artistically reminiscent of the images of John Batho. Like a mourning idol or the officiator of an ancient ritual, the figure in K-O7 is presented as the embodiment of lamentation in dialogue with the space; a dialogue produced by the continuity between the fabric’s textures and the rock.
