Making visible the invisible – Richard Mosse ‘The Enclave’

Richard Mosse explains the concept and some of the stories behind his film The Enclave (2013) which will be shown at the Irish Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale. The film, like the 2011 photo series Infra, was filmed in the Democratic Republic of Congo on 16 mm infrared film, designed by Kodak for use by army operations to identify camouflage on the field.

Mosse plays on the nature of the film as a means to making people physically visible: the pink hue on chlorophyll instead highlights the silent human suffering of the people in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
