An exhibition of Photographs looking out for the Overlooked by Ste Murray
This exhibition documents an architectural detail often found in 18th and 19th Century dwellings in Western Europe. These bootscrapers were designed to remove the street from your feet, and invented at a time when a taste for civic strolling in parks and boulevards became fashionable. Upon return from these leisurely jaunts, the people needed to décrottoir (‘remove excrement’) before entering the home. Enter the Bootscraper.
This is an ongoing project, first started in Dublin 8, with aims of exploring further dwellings of the same period around Dublin. It seeks to interrogate the notion of archiving; how and why we take stock for future generations.
