Three essays were commissioned for the printed material accompanying the exhibition, from Denise Kwan, Ciara Healy and Owen Griffiths. The brief was to write something that related to the exhibition space and concerns common to the keepers.
Denise Kwan approached the issues of the contemporary gallery through her early experiences of growing up in a take-away restaurant, while Ciara Healy provided an introduction to her research into the nature of ‘thin places’, those locations where history and emotion poke through the ‘thickness’ of contemporary life. Owen Griffiths looked back at the history of the Mission and started the process of gathering in the memories of those who have visited and worked in the gallery over the last 30 or 40 years.
