21 Nov 2008 - 22 Jan 2009. For the next two weeks the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Trinity College plays host to an exhibition of images by Miroslav Tichy, the rebellious, octegenrian Czech artist. Tichy has lived a hard, non-conformist life, and has been in and out of mental institutions and prisons. His work is photographic but not in the mainstream sense; improvising with makeshift cameras made from plastic pipes and elastic, he often developed his film by moonlight. His work could be described as voyeuristic, the subject matter mainly young girls who he followed and surreptiously photographed. His images are grainy, blurry and scratched in appearance, almost haphazard, yet ultimately strangely compelling.
