  • ...And Other Storeys

Aisling O Beirn's …And Other Storeys is derived from a body of research into various informal accounts of place. The research takes the form of a constantly expanding collection of urban myths, anecdotes, landmarks, place nicknames and hand drawn maps gathered from various cities.

O'Beirn's interest in these unofficial accounts stems from a concern regarding the politics of how place is described at a local, unofficial level. Recent installations and site specific projects mark an attempt to bring together some of this seemingly disparate information in a non-linear fashion through sculptural and site specific means.
