Nude Art Censored in Northern Ireland


ENNISKILLEN, NORTHERN IRELAND.- The Fermanagh District Council has been accused of censorship for leaving nude drawings out of an art exhibition at the Higher Briges Gallery run by the council. The exhibition is entitled “The Human Image” and includes works by Alison Lambert, a Surrey-born artist. The show was supposed to include six eight foot charcoal drawings, but four frontal nudes were left out of the exhibition. The exhibition did include two rear view nudes.

Alison Lambert stated the works depict human frailty and she commented that she was very surprised to know that four of the drawings were omitted from the show. The council felt the images could offend people that would go to the coffee shop next to the gallery.

Alison Lamber stated, “I don’t know really what the reason is. I was told there was a...group of politicians, or religious figures in the background somewhere that the people who ran the gallery and the head of leisure services were probably afraid of, and were afraid they might picket the gallery or cause some sort of trouble. These six drawings, larger than life size - about eight feet by five feet - are about what it is to be a human being. They are more about the emotion that I can convey. Things like the frailty and vulnerability of the human image."
