The Enclave, which represented Ireland and was critically acclaimed at the 2013 Venice Biennale, is the culmination of Mosse’s work in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

Comprised of six monumental double-sided screens installed in a large darkened chamber, The Enclave will offer visitors a physically immersive, disorientating and confronting experience.

Using an extinct type of infrared film once employed by the military, the artist documented rebel enclaves and sites of human rights. The result is a highly aesthetic installation that engages with the unseen, hidden and intangible aspects of the situation in eastern Congo, a tragically overlooked conflict in which 5.4 million people have died of war related causes since 1998.
