Some things that stay there be

A site specific work for the Exhibition 'Imaginaire Irelandais' at ENSBA in Paris addressing the experience of place in relation to history, mythology and geography. This work encouraged the viewer to move through from one end of the building to the other. A photograph taken blind through the keyhole of a wooden door at the far end of the lower gallery hung on a false wall standing some feet in front of the same door. The image in the photograph of a headless Minerva - the Roman goddess of wisdom and artisans - is faced towards the far end of the gallery where in gold leaf the precise position of the building (located by a GPS exhibited in a glass vitrine beside the photograph) was written in reverse on a window above the front entrance of the building.
