The Irish pictures, The Memory of the House, reflect O’Donoghue’s ongoing preoccupation with points of origin and departure, humble houses, fast crumbling but recorded by the artist in a photographic diary compiled over many years. O’Donoghue has always been concerned with memory and excavating the past and these houses serves as a metaphor for recovery and loss, sites of lost knowledge, history and certainty. Poignantly many of these houses have subsequently been destroyed.
