Artist in Residence, Armagh County Museum
This body of work was made between Feb- Aug 2019 while artist in residence in Armagh County Museum.
“The English “museum” comes from the Latin word, and….. is originally from the Ancient Greek Μουσεῖον (Mouseion), which denotes a place or temple dedicated to the Muses (the patron divinities in Greek mythology of the arts), and hence a building set apart for study and the arts.” ( from Wikipedia)
I examined artefacts from the museum’s collection used in everyday life and expanded on their context and history.
This Artist In Residence project was kindly supported by Armagh County Museum and the National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
