The MART Gallery
12th – 27th February 2016
MART is proud to present Primes, a new and evolving body of Jason Dunne’s recent wall-based sculptural work. In this exhibition, Dunne uses translucent images of body parts in combination with a wide variety of found objects and materials such as animal bones, wool, iridescent plastic beads and human hair. The resulting amalgamations attempt to articulate hard to fathom aspects of human experience such as emotion, aspiration or awareness of senses. The work can be seen as a response to the privileging of rational understandings of the body. The artist aims to open up a world beyond and beneath the ‘skin’ of the image; subordinating surface appearances and instead visualising through gesture what is normally unseen.
MART is excited to announce a call for proposals from established creatives for the use of our POP UP creative hub space at Portobello Harbour, Dublin 8 running from October 1st until Dec 31st 2018.
