This will be the first in a new series of the SouthTipp Arts Podcast and fits in beautifully with the reopening of South tipp arts centre.

This first episode focuses on our reopening exhibition, Protectorate by Photographer Denis Mortell.

Using the phenomenon of Brexit as a starting point, the exhibition considers themes such as Britishness, cultural difference, and social and political history. It looks at how myth and myth making, memory and place form part of national identity and community.
While some images reflect on borders, borderlands and territory; a puritan approach to food and the ironies of daily life are also commented on. The viewer is asked to consider what is really being protected and why. How much is real, how much is myth?

In this episode i caught up with Denis during the installation of protectorate, and also managed to have a chat with curator and art historian Catherine Marshall

As it has not been possible to have a public opening, we have released a short film on our youtube channel featuring some of Denis work and hearing the man himself explain his motivations and creative process. (link below)

Photographer Denis Mortell and Curator Catherine Marshall take a tour through the gallery and discuss the images that make up Denis' exhibition 'Protectorate' - this guide is available to visitors to South Tipp Arts Centre as a QR code that can be accessed with a mobile device in the gallery, and provides an insight into the artists motivations and inspirations for this body of work.
The exhibition runs from July 30th to August 22nd, 2020.
