It's Not My Place

Public Artwork
22 Riveroaks Housing Estate
Claregalway, Galway 2007

'It's not my place', was created for the show Subversion and the Domestic curated by Aideen Barry. The show was part of 'House Projects', a series of seven exhibitions spanning five months, over four cities, three countries, two continents; with the participation of seven co-ordinators/curators, forty nine artists and eight writers.

I put large plastic letters spelling out the sentence 'It's not my place' on to the front of number 22 River Oaks estate in claregalway. I then delivered an apology in the form of a flier to every house in the River Oaks housing estate.
