Supermarket Art Fair, Stockholm

April 2016

 

As part of their endeavours to provide creative platforms MART presents the work of five leading Irish contemporary artists at Supermarket Art Fair, Stockholm. The show forms part of an on-going programme of exhibitions curated by MART to promote Irish art in international contemporary art markets in Europe and the US.

Since 2007 MART has sought to create opportunities by conceiving creative platforms to support artists from all stages of their careers to test new ground. Projects have included exhibitions across Ireland, the U.K, Central Eastern Europe, North America and Japan. In 2013 MART began a project to renovate the fire station in Rathmines, Dublin and now supports over 100 members in 7 studio buildings, and includes a Gallery, Project Space and International residency.

SUPERMARKET is an international artist-run art fair for artist-run galleries and other artists’ initiative. It has featured exhibitors from more than 50 countries, all part of a growing international trend of artist-run galleries, project spaces, artist collectives and other artists’ initiatives.

Helen Mac Mahon is an Irish artist currently based in Dublin and exhibited in Ireland, Europe, the US and Asia. Her work takes the form of installations, sculpture and photography that explore light and perception.

“My practice is concerned primarily with the phenomena of light, movement, perception and space. The work strives to observe and reveal the ecosystem that exists between the viewer and these intangible elements that exist in a perpetual state of transformation. Changes occurring in each facet has a perceptible impact on others, revealing previously overlooked properties and characteristics.

My investigation of these elements is experimental in nature, and this exploratory process is as important as the finished piece, the unpredictability of the techniques often being key to discovery.  I use commonplace materials, such as light, glass, and lenses that have the potential to act in surprising ways, distorting and obscuring the very things it is their function to reveal. Each component acts as a catalyst, bringing to light unseen potential in the simplest of materials. Maintaining the integrity of the materials is also important, so the viewer is allowed to experience the everyday objects  in  new and often unexpected ways.”
