Video: The artist interviewed in his studio, August 2012

The five works within this exhibition reflect the personal experiences of O’Donoghue’s father, Daniel O’Donoghue, during the Second World War and they came about as a consequence of sorting out his father’s personal effects after his death.

O’Donoghue creates a narrative within his art, seeking to ‘remember’ events that he did not witness himself, and in doing so highlights the unreliability of personal memory.
