«Phantoms» by Marc Behrens.

The MART Gallery, Rathmines.

5 – 22 October 2016

Marc Behrens presents his solo exhibition «Phantoms» at MART as an interconnected sound and object array. The exhibition focuses mainly on the sound installations «Unit», «The Unknown» and «White Phantoms» and integrates them with a number of smaller sculptural works.  Phantoms are the placeholders for induced memories, imaginary places, ideas, entities or objects that you can only relate to by way of someone else’s accounts, since you have not been there, since you have not been with them. Marc Behrens materializes his own phantoms and tells their stories through combinations of sound and physical objects. All those materials, mostly organic but transmutable, all those sound objects are vibrations, reshaped, redefined. Like phantoms not of the artist’s body, but of the artist’s ideas and spiritual acts.

Epigraphing Rathmines




Epigraphing Rathmines – Curated by Moran Been-noon

Celebrating the relationship between art, literary culture, and the life of the community in Rathmines, this experiment brings forward two cultural markers within the neighbourhood: the Rathmines Library and the MART art gallery and studios, and the public space between the two.

Poet Annemarie Ni Churreain and visual artist Steven Maybury will create a collaborative cultural situation in a day-long engagement with the Rathmines community. The artists will respond to the place and the community surrounding them while they work, to generate poetic (visual and literary) representations of the moment, the dialogue, and the location. This event will be performed in both the library and gallery spaces and is open to all community members, artists, and writers to become part of what is aimed to become a portrait of a situation. Come join our epigraphers!

Interpretative documentation of the Epigraphic work, by Abigail Denniston, will be presented during the reception at the gallery at 6.30 pm.

Order of events on Wed. 3rd of December:

12-6 pm – performing artwork & documentation

6.30-8 pm – documented outcome of the work presented in MART Gallery

Steven Maybury

What I do: I create work that reflects the beauty and the energy rooted in the rhythms and cycles of our surroundings, of our consciousness, and of our interrelationships with the world. My practice is primarily realised through drawing and sculptural and my influences recently have been from collecting materials and objects through personal encounters. This stumble upon approach of chance and circumstance is fundamental to my process of selection for source materials and objects to work with.

My latest works can be viewed at The Eight Gallery and The Drawing Suite.
