Installation as part of Keeper 3 Galway Arts Centre, March, 2007
This new and central art work created for Keeper 3, was located on the ground floor gallery space. One wall was covered with hand screen printed wallpaper. The wallpaper was a re-presentation of a domestic aesthetic element found and documented in a ‘room’ once used by a loyalist internee housed in the Nissan huts, of the Kesh or Compound.
These ‘rooms’ were constructed by the interned men to create private spaces. He had used domestic accessories such as curtains, wallpaper, a lampshade, and personal objects, to define a private area in a architecturally unsuitable and inhospitable building.
