re-imagining the conflict janire najera
As an outsider, I’ve been captivated and intrigued by the powerful mural imaginery generated by the conflict in Northern Ireland, still on display in the streets of Belfast and Derry. Through the process of double exposure, I have explored the double dimension that has characterised the troubles, merging these symbols from the past with people from the neigbourhoods in which they are still displayed. After these exercise in merging conflict and peacetime, I have concentrated on how these icons still tell stories about former and potential conflicts and how they coexist with the passers-by in their everyday routine.
