In collaboration with Artist Bláithín Mac Donnell, 'The Snug and Stories' installed as part of Kitty Finer's Artist Behind Bars at The Bomb Factory, London is a simplified replica of an Irish pub snug.

The purpose of the structure was to facilitate a series of live spoken word performances and to host an audience.

The simple modular concept evolved from an aspiration to utilise a palette of ‘off-the-shelf’ and uncut solid timber softwood sections, twinwall cardboard sheets and clear polycarbonate roofing sheets. It was designed to be fully demountable by hand and reconfigurable as needed in the future.

After the exhibition ended the structure was dissassembled and reassembled elsewhere.
