other storys 2006
curated by colin darke and maoliosa o' boyle
..and other storys is a body of work derived from an ongoing
collection of urban anecdotes and place nicknames collected from
a variety of cities over a number of years.
The work consists of a selection of cardboard sculptural models
of various landmarks whose stories talk about the politics of place.
These models are shown with an animated projection which tells
the story behind each object. A projection of Derry place nicknames
shown in the form of scrolling text like cinema credits was shown
in the second gallery along with a cardboard model of a cannon
from Derry'ds Walls.
The work is concerned with how people describe their locality and
use local knowledge to navigate the urban environment.
