Extended Play - Enda O’Donoghue - 2004

Enda O'Donoghue's Extended Play is a portrait of a sleeping newborn baby just after entry into the air-breathing world. Not painted from life the image is transfered to us via a still from a digital video recording found somewhere on the internet. Enda O’Donoghue’s artistic practice flows through varied media and thematic interests but this concern with the situatedness of the human condition is a consistent thread. The interstices of life present particular challenges to the artist in that they are often among the most mundane images of contemporary existence. ‘…man exists, turns up, appears on the scene, and only afterwards, defines himself’, comments Sartre. Waiting, ‘between two worlds’, is a time when we meet ourselves; there is nothing to do, no distraction, just the human and his or her existence.
