“My Clinical Life”
Using her own hair and hospital bandages, Artist Katie Moore created a large hospital gown which was exhibited alongside a number of smaller gowns made from gauze and wire. The work was inspired by her experience of living with a disability. The resultant exhibition was launched in a public area at the University Hospital, Castlebar on 2nd December 2016 to an audience of 25 attendees.
Katie was surprised at the number of people who engaged with her about the artwork whilst attending the hospital. My exhibition of work was on display at Mayo University Hospital, so people who would not regularly attend a gallery got to view the work. The awareness went on after the exhibition, as it featured twice in the Western People newspaper”. (Katie Moore, Visual Artist)
