My Space

Artist Name(s) Cecilia Moore
Artwork title My Space
Context/Background My Space was a project by artist Cecilia Moore, which ran for a year from 2008 to 2009, changing every few weeks. Six plexi glass units each on a wooden plinth traveled to various venues across Ireland. It developed from an idea to create a facility to show small scale installations and three dimensional work in non gallery settings and would be available to artists of all levels. Exhibiting in My Space would give artists the opportunity to present art work to new audiences around Ireland.


Commissioned by Breaking Ground under the Local Artists commissioning strand, Cecilia put out an open call for submissions in early 2008 for artworks to be displayed in perspex units throughout the course of the year.

She received a phenomenal response to My Space, with over seventy artists participating in the project over the course of the year. My Space launched in June 2008 in Ballymun Civic Centre, and traveled to the National College of Ireland in the IFSC Dublin; The Helix, DCU; MacDonagh Junction, Kilkenny; Limerick City Museum, returning to the Civic Centre in Ballymun in July 2009, presenting three themed displays for it's finale.

My Space was delighted to present the work of the following artists over the course of the year:

Seamus McCormack, Patricia McKenna, Piia Rossi, Ciaran Breathnach, Elke Thomas, Aideen Doran, Aimee Slater & Rachael Bennett, A & A Sproule, Cecilia Moore, Brigid MacCarthy, Judyth Satyn, Dorothy Ann Daly, Victoria McElligot, Damien Fay, Willie Abbott, Long Weng, Rita Cahill, Alison Brent, Diana Caramaschi, Collette Moore, Sarah Armstrong, Noreen Lynch, Franck de la Mercedes, Sandra Petit-Frere, Julie Spollen, Cris Neumann, Sharon Murphy, Rowena Keaveney, Eimearjean McCormack, Gerard Dunne, Cordula Hansen, Roger O'Reilly, Helena Zeeman, John O'Connor, Ann Mulrooney, Seamus Nolan, Fiona Coffey, Aileen-Anne Brannigan, Mai Ryan, Cornelia Schmidt, Robert Dunne, Darren Caffrey, Linda McKay, Saidhbhin Gibson, Brigid Teehan, Jerry Cahir, Kate Howard, Liz Nilsson, Helen Barry, Christopher Boland, Verona Stellet, Carla Burns, Rowena Keaveney, Eoin Dunlop, Patricia Casey-Dunlop, Siobhan O'Malley, Ciara McMahon, Fergus Grant-Stevenson, Joan Henderson, The Bureau, Dexys Midnight Runners, Queenie Barnes, Elsie Barnett, Seamus Ruddy, Susannah Vaughan, Elaine Hurley, Mary A Fitzgerald and Margaret Tuffy.
