The images in Enda O’Donoghue’s paintings all come from the Internet. They are all other people’s images, digitally found images. Searching through popular online social networks and blogs on an ongoing basis, he compulsively collects and catalogues photographs that he finds. The photos which he works with are most often the throw-away shots which otherwise gather digital dust buried away on hard-drives, camera chips, mobile phones or uploaded and then lost or forgotten someplace on the Web. With each image he paints he is meticulous about tracing the ownership and requesting permission, partly as a way of dealing with the anonymous nature of the Internet and also a reaction to the issues surrounding online privacy and copyright.

The process of painting from these images is slow and methodical, firstly dissecting the image into sections on paper and then working over periods of weeks or months to reconstruct the image section by section as a painting. Echoing and playing with the nature digital image processing and compression algorithms, the painting process is highly analytical and methodical and yet filled with randomness and inviting of errors, misalignments and glitches.

Enda O’Donoghue is an Irish artist who has been living and working in Berlin since 2002. His work was recently featured at the 2010 Expo in Shanghai and in 2009 he had a solo exhibition in New York at the Irish Arts Center in Manhattan. His work has also been shown in Copenhagen, Paris, London and throughout Ireland and Germany. Over the past few years he has also been involved in organising and curating a number of group exhibitions in Berlin. This is his second solo exhibition at the Galerie Hunchentoot.

Enda O’Donoghue verwendet für seine Malerei digitale Fotos aus den Internet. Diese Bilder wurden in verschiedenen sozialen Netzwerken und Blogs veröffentlicht. Er sammelt und katalogisiert die vorgefundenen Bilder, bei denen es sich in der Regel um Zufallsaufnahmen, Wegwerf-Bilder und digitalen Müll handelt, der sich auf Speichermedien und im Netz ansammelt. Mittels aufwändiger Recherche macht er die Quellen der Fotos im Netz ausfindig und läßt sich deren Verwendung autorisieren. Auf diese Weise entwickelt sich eine Auseinandersetzung um Autorenschaft, Anonymität, Privatheit und Öffentlichkeit im Internet. 

Der Prozess der Übertragung in die Malerei erfolgt methodisch und langsam, indem er die Fotos zunächst in Sektoren fragmentiert. Diese werden jeweils einzeln auf der Leinwand rekonstruiert und schließlich Fragment für Fragment zu einem vollständigen Bild integriert. Auf diese Weise werden Prinzipien der digitalen Bildverarbeitung, wie die Aufteilung in Pixel oder Verdichtungsalgorhythmen in der Malerei verwendet. Dieser Prozess ist einerseits sehr methodisch und analytisch, andererseits aber immer wieder durch Fehler, Irrtümer und Unschärfen geprägt.

Enda O’Donoghue geboren 1973 in Limerick, lebt und arbeitet in Berlin. Er stellte 2009 im Irish Arts Center in New York auf und nahm kürzlich an einer Ausstellung im Irischen Pavillon der Expo 2010 in Shanghai teil. Weitere Ausstellungen erfolgten in Copenhagen, Paris, London, in Irland und Deutschland. Er organisierte und kuratierte einige Gruppenausstellungen in Berlin und zeigt seine zweite Einzelausstellung in der Galerie Hunchentoot.

der PROZESS

hunchentoot goes out 2

MATTHEW DAVIS, DENNIS NEUSCHÄFER-RUBE, ENDA O’DONOGHUE, MANFRED PECKL, SUSANNE POMREHN, GREGOR STEPHAN, MARC VOLK AND GÜNTER WINTGENS

Curated by Gregor Stephan, Enda O’Donoghue

Galerie hunchentoot presents the second in a series of “off-site” group exhibitions.
Featuring the works of eight artists who play with the depictions of reality, the pieces intersect and collide to create a patchwork of perspectives. The meticulous reproduction or the systematic deconstruction of the photographic, filmic and cartographic object is itself a translation process, one that attempts to reconfigure a part of reality with a personal set of rules. It in turn requires re-translation on the viewer’s part for the art to acquire a significance beyond that of the original maker.

The pieces in Der Prozess demonstrate “other” representative potentials of a familiar medium by thorough breakdown: a large football stadium made up of controlled paint drips, an entire Kubrick film flattened frame by frame into a hypnotic colour matrix. They ultimately offer a challenge of interpretation, a reality filtered and arranged by the art producer, whose perception is decoded and contextualised by the viewer. In a way, Der Prozess not only intimates the observable mechanics on the surface of the artwork, but — perhaps more importantly — at the reciprocal acts of understanding and relaying a certain reality.
