Artist Talk - Phillip Chancel & North Korea

  • Goldeen Thread Gallery 84-94 Great Patrick Street Belfast, Northern Ireland, BT1 2LU United Kingdom (map)


Over the past twenty five years Philippe Chancel’s photography has explored the complex, shifting and fertile territory where art, documentary and journalism meet. His is a constantly evolving project, focusing on the status of images when they are confronted with what constitutes “images” in the contemporary world.

Best known for his body of work ‘DPRK,’ Chancel will offer a revealing and original vision of North Korea from his festival exhibition ‘Kim Happiness.’ In this talk he will raise the question of the ethics of an image, not one taken from the news and the media, but right from its creation.
