|Context/Background||Fill is a project by Catherine Delaney, commissioned by Breaking Ground, the Per Cent for Art programme for Ballymun Regenerated Ltd|
Imbued with a haunting sense of melancholy and loss, Fill traces the presence of a profound absence, preserving the memory of time and life passed by. A ghostly silver landscape forms from the hollow negative potholes, cracks, fissures, splits and tears of the previous street from the Old Ballymun.
The work was reviewd in The Irish Times, Magill Magazine and www.recirca.com

Greystones Educate Together National School appointed a voluntary committee with relevant expertise to oversee the per cent for art commissioning process. An external curator, Máire Davey, was appointed specifically for her expertise in working in a highly collaborative way as meaningful involvement from the students and school was viewed as central to the process. The procurement route chosen was limited invited competition.
