The Speed Art Museum’s exhibition will include two single-channel video installations -- Ghost Story (first shown in 2007 at the 52nd Venice Biennale) and Buried (commissioned for Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh in 2009) - and e11 large-scale photographs of the borders between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland the artist made in the 1990s.
