Danielle Anderson

“Northern Ireland is a confusing country. My visual language aims to assist both my own and the viewers’ comprehension of its complex experience. My self-analysis focuses on the process of integration in a country still haunted by its past.” Anderson takes photographs very impulsively, “confronting the trouble that I have spent my life unsuccessfully trying to ignore.” These images are filled with tension and ambiguity; they are unconscious repetitions, metaphors and expressions of emotion. The artist reads them as articulations of “the split culture of my country and identity.”
