Huis Marseille Museum voor Fotografie has recently acquired for its collection two large works by artist Willie Doherty – Seepage and To the Border, A Fork in the Road....

 

The exhibition showcasing works by Willie Doherty and other artists whose work has also recently been acquired by Huis Marseille will open on 14 December.

 

At this year’s Art Basel, Doherty was represented by the striking video Remains (2013), drawn from ‘a body of work that meditates upon the irrefutable traces of past events that will not disappear, that resurfaces and cannot be forgotten.’
