Najdžel Svon (Nigel Swann), rođen je šezdesetih godina u pograničnom okrugu Armagh (Severna Irska) a od devedesetih je živeo u pograničnom okrugu Louth (Republika Irska). Njegovo iskustvo života u ovim područjima je da su to bili ne samo duboko militarizovane strukture tokom burnih godina konflikta, nego su ostali nevidljiva granica i nakon potpisivanja mirnovnog Sporazuma u Belfastu 1998. godine. Kada je britanska Vlada najavila referendum za istupanje iz EU, Svon je ponovo posetio ovu granicu kako bi nastavio i produbio istraživanje kroz dva glavna elementa svoje fotografske prakse, a to su „pejzaž i sećanja“ i „genius loci“. Ključna odlika ovog projekta su vizuelni tragovi koji ostaju vidljivi na palimpsestu pejzaža: eho prethodnih situacija i doživljaja koji govore o sadašnjim političkim promenama.

Fotograf Nigel Swann rođen je u Portadown-u u Severnoj Irskoj, 1962 godine. Studirao je na Nacionalnom koledžu za umetnost i dizajn u Dublinu, gde je 1985. godine stekao diplomu iz skulpture. Ove godine se na Beogradskom irskom festivalu predstavlja sa izložbom „Borderlands”.

Nigel Swann, who was born in the ‘border’ county of Armagh (the North) in the 1960’s and lived in the border county of Louth (Republic of Ireland) since the 1990’s, experienced the border region as both a heavily militarised apparatus during the Troubles and as an invisible, frictionless border after the signing of the Good Friday agreement in 1998. When the British government announced the referendum on the UK membership of the EU, Swann revisited these borders to purse and investigate his enquiry though the two main components of his photographic practice which are: ‘landscape and memory’ and ‘genius loci’. The main tenets of this vital project are the visual clues that remain visible in the palimpsest landscape: the echoes of previous situations and sentiments which speak of the present political ‘ ux’.

Photographer Nigel Swann was born in Portadown, Northern Ireland in 1962. He studied and honed his skills in the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. In 1985 he graduated with a degree in Fine Art Sculpture. This year he brings his powerful exhibition, ‘Borderlands’ to the Belgrade Irish Festival.
