Over the last two years, the artist Silvia Loeffler, whose practice concerns itself with deep mapping people’s place-based relationships, was inspired by the creative possibilities of the Central Library, the busiest public library in Dublin city.
The installation in the Central Library is held together by map fragments, personal narratives and images of past and present to discuss the cultural and socio-economic changes of an area and its effects on the community.Silvia revives, transforms and re-creates maps within current infrastructure by involving communities to find some answers to the questions: What is the city? Who are its people? What are our shared narratives of public space? What makes this place ‘home’?
