Paper Bloom

1916 Jackie Clarke Residency

Paper Bloom Publication

My Paper Bloom book is a permanent documentation of my Jackie Clarke Collection Residency to Commemorate 1916.

I’m delighted with how the publication has turned out. My friend Sally was the designer on the project. As my Paper Bloom installation is temporary I wanted to have something permanent left behind. It is a limited edition book, and was only available at the closing event of Paper Bloom, but there are a few copies in libraries around Mayo.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Paper Bloom book – Peter Hynes, Sinead Mc Coole, Vincent Woods, and Aidan Dunne. And of course a big thank you to the designer Sally Caulwell.

Mummy and Baby lily makers

My very last workshop of lily making before Paper Bloom was installed was with a group of friends who are all on maternity leave. Four new mums and four new babies. It was fantastic!

In between naps, feeds, and cups of tea we made lots of lovely fabric lilies. Mums are well able to multitask. I’m so grateful for their help, time, and of course for letting me snuggle their babies!

A big thank you to Shelly and Keelan, Clare and Adam, Aine and Aoife, and Heather and Sadie.

Behind the scenes of installing the art work

I was very lucky to have help from friends and coworkers while installing both the Paper Bloom exhibition and the community work exhibition.

Paper Bloom Closing Event and Publication Launch

Last Saturday the 25th of June marked the final day of my Paper Bloom exhibition. I have been artist in residence at the Jackie Clarke collection since last September 2015, the time has really flown by, but I have enjoyed every minute of it, and learned so much.

Paper Bloom by Katie Moore, Ballina Civic Offices, 2016

 

I was blown away by all the people that showed up for the closing event, it was lovely to see so many people. My Paper Bloom limited edition publication was also launched at the closing event, we were giving away one free copy to everyone who attended. Edel Golden, the manager of the Jackie Clarke Collection was the MC for the event, she did an amazing job. Aidan Dunne, Irish Times Art Critic, was the guest speaker, he spoke so beautifully, it was lovely to hear what he had to say about my work. I said a few words to give people an insight into Paper Bloom, and to say thank you. My Paper Bloom publication is a permanent documentation of my Jackie Clarke Collection residency.
