About the artist:
Locky Morris was born in Derry City, where he continues to live and work. After studying at the Ulster University and Manchester Polytechnic, he works in a variety of media including photography, found objects, installation, text, sound and video.
During the 1980s and 1990s Morris became known for producing work that referred and reacted explicitly to the Troubles. His piece Town, Country, People references the constant surveillance that was carried out by the security forces during the conflict. Beams of light from police and army helicopter spotlights would sweep over the landscape watching for terrorist activity.
