Talking About / Paying For

Venue: bio.space033, 33 charles St West, Dublin 7

Hugh McElveen’s use of photography could –almost– be incidental. Linguistics, topography and psychology are the cornerstones of ‘Talking About / Paying For’. Distorted and dream-like, McElveen’s photographs come to reinforce the subjective nature of the topic of prostitution, constantly swaying between intimacy and voyeurism.

Over the course of a year, Hugh McElveen patiently built up the coup de maître of re-opening a debate on the sex industry without clichés and romantic notions. Documenting a taboo Dublin and engaging with former and current sex-workers –of which Rachel Moran is one, McElveen manages to expose both sides of the argument without complacency. This comes at a crucial time when legislation is about to dramatically transform those ephemeral physical and psychological landscapes McElveen crystallised with acute minimalism.

Exhibition will feature prints, a video and a stereoscope that will travel across Dublin after exhibition times.
