The Vinyl Factory and Edel Assanti present Richard Mosse’s multichannel video installation The Enclave.

With Richard Mosse’s The Enclave opening at The Vinyl Factory’s Brewer Street Car Park Space, we’re excited to bring you a gallery of photos from the exhibition that will accompany Mosse’s stirring and deeply unsettling 40-minute video installation, presented on eight double-sided screens in a large darkened chamber and soundtracked by experimental electronic music composer Ben Frost.

Shot on a discontinued infrared military reconnaissance film, The Enclave is the culmination of Mosse’s work in eastern Democratic of Congo and presents the largely unreported conflict in a striking light that emphasises the tension between documentary war photography and visual art. “Beauty,” as Mosse explains, “is the main line to make people feel something. It is the sharpest tool in the box.”

Exhibition dates: 4th April – 26th April

Open Tuesday to Saturday 11:30am – 5.30pm (Extended Hours: Thursday 10th April until 7pm)
