deAppendix is a cultural space in the heart of Dublin’s ‘burbs. Co-located with a GP surgery, deAppendix hosts a changing calendar of contemporary art exhibitions and artists talks. While not a therapeutic project itself, deAppendix’s lives in symbiosis with the therapeutic space of a GP surgery for it’s existence. Through its artist-in-residence programme deAppendix challenges how such spaces are activated and in so doing questions accepted norms for this genre of space. deAppendix is a project by Ciara McMahon, whose art practice frequently examines the potential for hybridity between the disciplines of Art and Medicine.
