CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS LECTURE SERIES
The artist discusses the breaking and remaking of documentary photography in his series "Infra," which depicts rebel groups in Eastern Congo. The grim content of these portraits and landscapes is both belied and heightened by Mosse's use of an obsolete infrared film which was developed by the U.S. military to detect camouflage, and shifts greens to candy-sweet pinks, lurid oranges, and vivid reds. Recently selected to represent his native Ireland in the Venice Biennale, Mosse received an MFA in photography from Yale in 2008 and is based in New York. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship last year, he comes to Cleveland from Berlin where he is spending 2012-13 as an artist-in-residence.
