The Iraq Room 2003
The Iraq Room was made possible through a residency at Kunstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf, Germany in 2003. It was inspired by the idea of the ‘Museum’ as a symbolic tool for western colonial ambitions. The attendant paces the floor of the Gallery deep in thought again and again creating a spontaneous silent theater with his chair and a potted palm, here the stage is 'The Iraq Room' at The Pergamon Museum in Berlin at the height of the war in Iraq April 2003. Exhibited as part of the 'Crawford Open 4' exhibition at The Crawford Art Gallery, Cork 2003.
