Niall de Buitlear

'The Found Bookmark Project'
National Library of Ireland, Kildare Street

Niall presents a selection of tickets, receipts, letters, note-pages and many other items which have all been used as provisional bookmarks and were found in between the pages of books in public libraries around Dublin during the Summer 2009.

Each unique item has been adapted from its previous existence: firstly, into a makeshift place-holder; and secondly, into an object of contemplation which asks the viewer to consider it's history and its reason for use.
